Over time your artificial plants, flowers and trees are likely to become dusty or dirty. Cleaning artificial plants really isn't that difficult - and once your finished it will look just as good as it did the day you took it out of the box! Please watch our short video or read our guide below to learn how to clean your artificial plant.

Option 1: Paintbrush

Starting from the top of the plant (so that the dirt doesn't fall onto foliage you've already cleaned), simply brush each piece of foliage until it is clean. This method will take between 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the plant and how dusty it is, but will produce the best results.

A paintbrush is particularly useful for getting into hard to reach nooks and for cleaning delicate products.

Option 2: Compressed Air

Simply spray compressed air along each piece of foliage. This technique is very similar to the above method but won't take quite as long. Be warned, compressed air blows dust EVERYWHERE so we strongly recommend that you do this outside.

Option 3: A Damp Cloth

Wipe each piece of foliage with a damp cloth to remove any dust and dirt. Once complete, use some kitchen towel to dry the foliage and remove the shiny sheen the water creates.

A damp cloth is particularly effective at removing marks and stuck on dirt. Please do not use cleaning products or attempt to clean silk plants using this method as it may cause the colours to run.
