How to update artificial flowers: the house will sparkle with new colors
There is a widespread stereotype that artificial flowers in the home are bad manners. In fact, interior designers say that decor made from quality materials is a great alternative to natural flowers.
Plants require care, and owners do not always have enough time to devote to flowers in vases or pots. Therefore, House Digest experts told us how to update artificial flowers to make them look like new.
Life hacks for artificial flowers
First of all, artificial flowers are hypoallergenic, and secondly, they are completely unpretentious in their care. They will perfectly match the interior and create a sense of home comfort, so don't underestimate this home decor.
If you're looking for a quick, effective, and inexpensive way to update your artificial flowers, just grab a jar of salt. You don't have to dust off each petal or spend money on special sprays. Salt is an ideal ingredient for high-quality and gentle cleaning of home decor elements.
Step 1. Place individual shoots (if the bouquet is prefabricated) or the entire flower arrangement in a paper or plastic bag or container that can be closed.
Step 2. Add 2 tablespoons of salt.
Step 3. Now close the lid and shake the bag gently for a minute to remove any accumulated dirt and dust from the flowers.
Step 4. Remove the bouquet or flower and shake to remove any remaining salt. It is fashionable to use the cold mode of the hair dryer.
This life hack works perfectly because salt is a mild abrasive and helps restore the natural look of artificial flowers. Alternatively, you can use corn flour.
By the way, dust accumulation is most noticeable on flat horizontal surfaces such as tables or shelves. You can prepare a product with dust-repellent properties yourself. It should be based on an ordinary fabric softener. Read the article to find out in what proportions the ingredients should be mixed and how to wipe the furniture without leaving stains.
