How to care for Artificial Silk Flowers?
Rinse your flowers under a hand-held spray tap or lightly swirl your flowers around in a bucket filled with cold water in order to remove all dust and grime. Dust your flowers with a small, dry paintbrush or feather duster. Always use cold water, never use heat or hot water, as this will cause the colours to fade and there may be same colour transfer. Shine your vase with a soft cloth and window cleaner. Allow them to air dry completely in a shaded area or use a hairdryer set on cool air.
