How to Clean Your Artificial Flowers
When it comes to caring for and cleaning your Secret Blooms artificial flowers, less is more.
We recommend a light dusting of your Blooms every now and then with a soft, static duster or, where necessary, a lightly moistened e-cloth on hardier surfaces like orchid leaves. Our favourite trick is using a hairdryer on a cool, low setting and giving your bouquet or arrangement a light blow-wave. If you do this every few weeks you’ll be sure to shift any dust that’s settled – safely.
Avoid direct sunlight for extended periods as this can fade colourful blooms over time.
A number of our customers enjoy rotating a bouquet or arrangement to keep things looking fresh. Between uses, slip a bouquet or arrangement into a pillow case in the linen cupboard for safe keeping.
Occasionally a flower head or leaf might come away from the stem. Whilst our blooms are hardy they’re still delicate in parts to ensure they remain as lifelike in their appearance and movement as possible. In most cases a head or leaf can pop straight back on. If you find it happens again, consider using a tiny amount of glue to affix it more permanently.
Preparing your Secret Blooms
Carefully unpack your arrangement, ensuring the box is upright before cutting the straps and sliding your blooms out of the box. Some of our Blooms are individually wrapped so take care when pulling the protective covers off.
With a gentle touch, bend and shape the stems and foliage as you wish to achieve a softened, natural look. Stems can be bent to suit various vase heights. Open out the petals of the flowers with your fingers to give a varied, authentic appearance.
