Step-by-Step Care Guide for Dried & Preserved Flowers

Step 1: Choose the Right Location

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Place your dried and preserved flowers in a spot away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.
  • Avoid Humidity: Keep them in a dry environment to avoid moisture, which can cause mold and make the flowers brittle.

Step 2: Dust Regularly

  • Use a Soft Brush: Gently brush off dust with a soft, clean brush or feather duster.
  • Blow Off Dust: Alternatively, use a can of compressed air to blow off dust without damaging the flowers.

Step 3: Handle with Care

  • Minimal Touching: Handle the flowers as little as possible to prevent breakage.
  • Support Stems: When moving or arranging, support the stems and petals to avoid snapping or crumbling.

Step 4: Protect from Pests

  • Use Anti-Pest Spray: Lightly spray with a floral anti-pest product if needed, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Regular Checks: Regularly inspect the flowers for signs of pests and treat promptly if found.

Step 5: Maintain Color

  • Avoid Direct Light: As mentioned, keep away from direct sunlight.
  • Use Hair Spray: A light mist of hair spray can help preserve the color and add a protective layer.

Step 6: Storage Tips

  • Store Properly: If you need to store the flowers, place them in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
  • Avoid Compression: Ensure the flowers are not compressed to maintain their shape.

Step 7: Refresh as Needed

  • Replace Damaged Flowers: Replace any flowers that become too damaged over time.
  • Rotate Display: Occasionally rotate the flowers to ensure even exposure to light and air.

Step 8: Enhance Longevity

  • Avoid Excess Handling: The less you handle the flowers, the longer they will last.
  • Keep Away from Vents: Avoid placing flowers near heating or air conditioning vents to prevent drying out or becoming too brittle.

By following these steps, your dried and preserved flowers should remain beautiful and vibrant for an extended period.
