Cleaning Silk Flowers

Flowers can add a touch of elegance to any room.  Places like hotels and offices use flowers all year round to create a pleasant ambience for visitors and employees.  However, it’s not always practical for these places to use real flowers in their displays.  They need to be replaced every few days at great expense.  Nowadays, silk flowers are just as beautiful as their real counterparts and, if they are looked after, can last forever.  However, artificial flowers will only stay looking beautiful if they are regularly cleaned.  There are various methods that can be used to clean silk flowers.

If the flowers are not particularly dusty, they can be cleaned with either a feather duster or damp cloth.  Using a feather duster lightly over the surface of the silk flowers will remove any dust that may have accumulated over them.  For more persistent dust, a hairdryer can be used to blow the dust off the flowers.

A damp cloth will also remove dust from the surface of artificial flowers.  The cloth should be soft and lint free so as not to damage the delicate silk petals.  Clean the flowers using soft strokes over the surface of the petals.  Be careful not to use too much water as excessive water can cause permanent damage to silk flowers.

For silk flowers with persistent dust particles that can’t be dusted or wiped away, specialist chemical sprays can be used.  These sprays work by dissolving dust particles, leaving silk flowers looking as good as new.
