Do preserved flowers require special care?
Taking care of preserved flowers requires a delicate touch and attention to specific conditions. Here are some general tips for preserving the beauty of your dried flowers:
- Avoid Direct Sunlight: Keep preserved flowers away from direct sunlight, as exposure can cause them to fade over time.
- Control Humidity: Preserved flowers are sensitive to humidity. It's best to place them in a dry environment. Consider using Silica Gel or Dehumidifiers to maintain low humidity levels.
- Indoor Placement: Keep preserved flowers indoors to protect them from the elements and maintain their vibrant colors.
- Well-Ventilated Space: Ensure the area where you display the preserved flowers is well-ventilated. Good airflow helps prevent the growth of mold or mildew.
- Avoid Water: Unlike fresh flowers, preserved flowers don't need water. In fact, exposing them to water can lead to deterioration. Keep them away from damp or humid places.
- Dust Off Gently: Dust can accumulate on preserved flowers over time. Use soft brushes or a gentle duster to remove dust, taking care not to damage the delicate petals.
- Handle with Care: Preserved flowers can be delicate, so handle them with care. Avoid excessive touching or squeezing, as this may cause petals to break or lose their shape
- Periodic Inspection: Regularly inspect your preserved flowers for any signs of decay, discoloration, or mold. If you notice any issues, address them promptly.
- Avoid Drastic Temperature Changes: Sudden changes in temperature can affect preserved flowers. Try to keep them in a stable environment without drastic temperature fluctuations.
