    I remove mine from their container, place them in the sink, hose them down and then hang them from the faucet to dry.
  • You could also use your blow dryer or air compressor and blow the dust off. I have used my air compressor to blow the dust out of fans, vacuum filters, and even outdoor rugs. But make sure you are not blowing into the wind LOL Good luck

    Lysol spray if they aren't heavily soiled. I know, sounds odd, but a friend taught me this and it works. Spray them, let them dry. Not only cleans them but makes them smell good too.

    Thanx Donna, is that with both plastic and silk flowers ?

      @Debbie just silk flowers, guess your could try it on plastic. We used the Lysol spray on artificial ficus trees in the church vestibule and all the floral arrangements and greenery. Don't have to remove the flowers from containers when you do this. I did mine about once a few weeks. Never noticed any color changes or spotting or anything from using the spray.

    I have a hand held shower head in my shower, so I just gently rinse them off by holding 4-5 stems at a time and shake to dry into the tub. Then lay them on some old towels. (Colors may run, but usually not)

    I put a lot of salt in a paper or plastic bag and shake the items or plastic flowers...I even cleaned a small dusty lamp shade in it this week.
