Silk flowers will last for years.
But over time, dust collects on the petals and leaves. A dusty, dirty flower arrangement makes a room look dated.
Even though silk flowers have a lot of surface area, they don't take long to clean. You can get your flowers free of dust and ready for display in minutes.
Note: Remember to take your flowers outside to dust.
How to Get Yellowing Stains Out of Silk Flowers?
Your silk flowers have become dirty and need a bath. If your flowers are old or you spilled something on them, they can develop yellow stains.
You choose: Florists and craft stores sell spray-on silk flower cleaner for tough stains. Before investing in a can of cleaning spray, give old-fashioned soap and water a try.
Take the silk flowers outside and blow them with a can of compressed air or a hair dryer. Set it to the no-heat setting. Remove as much dust as possible.
Place 2 cups of salt or dry white rice in a plastic zip lock bag. Place the silk flowers in the bag facing down. Zip the bag or hold the top closed around the stems. Shake the bag for 30 seconds.
If you use salt, shake the flowers over the sink or outdoors after shaking them in the bag to remove stray grains.
Mix 1/2 cup of white vinegar and 1/2 cup of water in a spray bottle. Mist the flowers with the solution and allow it to sit for 15 minutes.
Fill a sink with lukewarm water and add 2 teaspoons clear, unscented dishwashing liquid.
Swish the flowers in the soapy water until the stains are gone. Rinse the flowers with cool water and dry them on several layers of white paper towels.
Boil a pot of water if your flowers are wrinkled or flat after drying. Hold the flowers in the steam, above the surface of the water, for a few seconds to fluff them up.
