How To Clean Silk Flowers
In this video, master florist Alexandra will show you how you can easily clean grubby silk and other artificial flowers.
I'm going to show you how to clean silk flowers. They get very grubby. The best thing to do is to clean them once a week, if you can, you can use a hair dryer on a cold setting to blow the dust off.
If you do that, you rarely need to clean them. There are specialist products you can use, and you just spray it. You don't need to do anything but spray, and that should clean it up very nicely for you.
If they're extremely grubby or if you don't have a specialist cleaner, you can use just lukewarm water with a very, very mild amount of washing-up liquid in it. Just give it a swish around, and then I'm going to do this one again. You dip in your flower head.
Now, if you are actually cleaning silk flowers, because there's not many silk flowers around now, they're generally artificial flowers, you should make sure this is very, very cool, and you could maybe use a washing power solution for delicate fabrics, and again, a very small amount of it, and you just dip and rinse. That's all you do and then you leave them to air dry. That'll get them nice and clean for you. And that's how you clean silk flowers! .
