Cleaning Your Fake Flowers & Greens

Today I want to share with you a quick cleaning tip. I don’t have a lot of fake flowers and greenery but I do have a few and they are major dust collectors. After a while they just look dull and gross from too much dust. So here is a quick tip on how to safely and effectively clean them.

Step one: Decide it is time to clean your greens!

Step 2: Fill your bathtub with warm water and add your cleaning solution to the warm water. I use Shaklee’s Basic H2 all purpose cleaner. Why do I use that instead of Mr. Clean, Pine sol, or other all purpose cleaners? I use it for several reason…….first, it is all natural and safe for my family, there are NO fumes or hazardous odors. Second, it is also very cost effective! One bottle of Basic H2 super concentrate has hundreds of uses and costs pennies compared to other cleaners. And third, it works! I am not willing to sacrifice green products for effectiveness.


Step 3: Gently toss your flowers and greens into the tub and swish around in the water.

Let them sit in there for 10-15 minutes and swish around a few times throughout.


Step 4: Drain the tub and rinse your flowers and greens under warm water.

Step 5: Hang in a safe place to dry, I hung my vines from my shower head. 




That is all there is to washing your flowers and greens! It was a quick and easy way to wash my greens without having to hand wash every leaf.
