After you buy your
artificial plant or your
artificial flower arrangement,
you have already fluffed it up and positioned the stems and
branches to your liking. The plant now sits right where it
needs to be, but after about 3 to 6 months a nice layer of
dust and dirt will collect on your leaves. What do you do?
Dusting your artificial plant only does so much, so now you
want to find out what the best way is to clean your
silk tree or plant.
Whether it's an artificial tree, a
silk plant or silk flowers, test it to
make sure that your plant will take well to some tap water.
Remove one leaf from an inconspicuous portion of your
artificial plant and rinse it with
some tap water and shake it out. After a few minutes, check
the leaf to see
how shiny it is.
After your have tested your leaf, the best thing to do is to
take the plant
outside and dust it with a feather duster. This will remove
most of the dust
and prime your plant for it's cleaning. Then check your
tree or flower arrangement to make sure that the filler
isn't some kind of
paper such as newspaper. You will most certainly end up with

array of Spanish moss to our customers, or find some at your

Make sure that you have your
silk plant or
silk tree on a cemented area like a patio or a driveway
and is near a water hose. If you have a spray nozzle on your
hose, you're in good shape, if not, just make sure that you
spray the water at your artificial plant rather than dousing
it. Spray your plant thoroughly with the hose, and when
you're done, shake the artificial tree or plant lightly to
get most of the water off.
After you are finished with spraying and shaking out your
silk plant or your
silk tree, allow it to dry in the sun for a few hours.
This regimen is good to do about ever 3 to 6 months, and in
between those times, we suggest that you use a good feather
duster to keep your
artificial plants looking fresh and new.
