清洁丝绸植物和鲜花

44056

这是我们Facebook页面下来的一个很好的问题:

你好'清洁我的空间'团队,我想知道你是否有任何提示或技巧来快速清洁人造树的叶子。我附上了一张我的树的照片,所以你可以看到我正在谈论的叶子的类型......哦,树干是真正的木/树皮,只是叶子是人为的(我认为丝绸制成)。谢谢,Gizelle。(她的照片在下面)

这是一家丝绸植物,靠近和个人。


She’s a beaut!

The skinny on silk plants

丝绸植物和树木是很棒的这样的人me who ‘forget’ to water their plants. Here’s one I’ve sort of nursed in my office for the last year…it looks uh, just ok. Let me rephrase that: it is lucky to be alive.

可怜的东西。我试过,我真的这样做了。

由于浇水下,我甚至失去了幸运的竹子(基本上坚不可摧)。好吧,羞辱,很明显,我不是唯一一个有植物维护问题的人,因此是健康和蓬勃发展的丝绸植物和花卉行业。我认为他们是一个目的;将颜色的流行音色添加到空间中,不需要浇水(见上文)。然而,我也可以告诉你的是,人们经常有一个'设置它并忘记它的心态。简单地说,人们忘了灰尘。我去过几个餐厅,看到这个安静的罪恶;在多伦多的高档水疗中心,我甚至见证了一层厚厚的灰尘。在这个非常着名的水疗中心建立(应该是干净的?)我拍了几张照片的个人收藏。如果据说餐厅的浴室表明厨房的清洁,尘土飞扬的花卉安排对水疗中心的清洁是什么?

忘了“尘土飞扬的玫瑰”,我称之为“尘土飞扬的薰衣草”。

Now as we know, dust settles on horizontal surfaces (it’s not interested in vertical), so think of a silk plant as 1,000 little horizontal catchers for your household dust. Before you squirm too much, these arrangements and plants don’t need to be cleaned all the time, but a good quarterly dusting will do the trick and keep your silk plants looking great.

To clean a silk plant:

第1步 - 把它带到外面

灰尘将在此过程中飞行并重新定位;更好地让母亲自然处理它比你花时间吸尘(我全都在这里拯救时间)。

第2步 - 不同的笔画

Grab yourself a clean soft-bristle paint brush and give your plant a quick dusting, leaf by leaf. To give you an idea of timing, this technique will take about 10 minutes to clean Gizelle’s plant. As with all dusting, I recommend you start at the top of the plant and work your way to the bottom so that dust does not re-settle on a cleaned area. I find the paint brush is better than a feather duster (I’m not really a fan of them) because it can get into smaller crevices and more effectivley moves dust off the leaf. You can brush the branches and trunk at this time as well, working your way down from top to bottom, of course.

When the leaves are dusted, brush the base of the plant clean of any dust too.

注意:有些人谈论湿布,一个逐个擦拭叶子。我会谨慎谨慎,因为水(或任何液体)可以变形精美制作的植物的形状,你不希望(这些东西不便宜)。如果您使用清洁产品,颜色也可以运行。不漂亮。

What about silk flowers?

嗯,丝绸花可以相同的方式处理我们将清洁丝绸植物。在我的世俗旅行中,我听说过盐清洗技术。基本上,它通过将人造花添加到装满餐盐(也许是一杯)并清洁花朵,只需摇动袋(关闭),让盐从花中摇动灰尘。完全披露,我还没有尝试过这种方法,听起来它可能是较高的茎的花朵的麻烦。我想提到它在这里为那些感兴趣的人留下替代方案,但是再次不能说我有这种技术的经验。

I have tried another technique though; dishwashing silk flowers. In theory, almost any plastic item be cleaned in the dishwasher so long as it is placed on the top rack (so that it doesn’t melt) and is washed without detergent. I had heard of this working and decided to put it to the test with some pretty deep purple Dahlias that I had from Michael’s. So, my expectation was that they would come out clean and they certainly did. However, the unexpected byproduct of this was that the flowers actually dyed the lining of my dishwasher. Not hot at all, let me tell you. Seeing that my house is somewhat of a test lab, I’ve since let it go and don’t pay too much attention to my slightly purple upper rack of the dishwasher. Having that experience, I don’t know how strongly I recommend that method either. Stick with the paintbrush!

If you need to get an idea,这是你要找的刷子的鲍勃罗斯的版本。现在这是一个关于画笔(和头发)了解一两件事的人!

  1. Call me old fashioned, but for some very dense large wreaths, I took it outside and distanced myself and used a leaf blower ( (but do it in the backyard so your neighbors don’t see the dust storm). For those silk greens on the top shelf, I too dunk just the plant upside down in water and leave upside down to dry. For my silk trees, I carefully wrap the basket in a plastic bag and lay sideways over the patio table when rains, shake and turn a few times. The rain water does not leave spots.

  2. I have some that are hung high up, and I am rather height impaired (my ex womb mate received the height gene, and the looks, I am the smart one!) anyway one year I was hosting Christmas, this was in the eighties, and I noticed the dust on the silk plants, I was in a rush to get ready and for some reason I sprayed them with hair spray, and guess what! Not only did they not look dusty, but ended up shiny! I even received comements on how nice they looked. Now only I knew that I had actually hairsprayed the dust on them forever, but it did the trick, and I still do that, once or twice a year, and they still look great! Oh I also use hair spray to kill flying bugs. So some people call me crazy hairspray bird lady!

  3. 嗨梅丽莎和读者!

    我已经尝试过许多技术,发现最好的方法是袋子技巧中的盐来验证和真实。

    提示#1:仅通过使用大粒盐来执行此操作!莫顿太小了,可以在较小的空间之间“抓住”。此外,如果有一点潮湿的潮湿,那么那些吸盘可以像疯了一样抓住,让你坚持试图让他们关闭。

    提示#2:使用大型垃圾袋来长茎,在您的车库或户外摇晃。这是为了做到这一点,但相信我,你需要这个空间,并且真的不想在地毯上的盐粒子,厨房的地板或硬木地板上。再次,疼痛清理和盐可能或可能不会变色某些类型的楼层。

    Happy shaking!

    • Trail and error girl here (I;m allergic to everything on gods green earth so I’ve been in possession of quite the collection of fake plants) So I tried vacuuming the silk ficus and well… let’s just say it ended up with some bald spots. I tried covering the end with a paper towel and some cheese cloth to help but it only decreased suction so it was hard to get at all of it to dust. Blowing the dust off with canned air really worked for me!

      • 嗨Saakina

        关于在真空管的软管上使用奶酪布和纸巾,尼龙袜怎么样?将尼龙的封闭端包裹(希望你不是过敏的),并通过紧紧或用橡皮筋绑住软管上。
        吸入的任何叶子,鲜花或塑料部件都会夹在细网上,易于更换。

        小心:确保尼龙紧紧且没有运行,撕裂或撕裂靠近软管开口。伤心地说,你会担心维修费用比你的花朵更多

    • That method could really damage the plants or flowers. It sucks up the leaves and flower stems and disfigures the ones that are left. Believe me I tried it. LOL

  4. 压缩空气怎么样?从顶部到底部使用Swiffer Duster,然后以同样的方式跟进压缩空气(当然是在户外)

  5. 您好:是否有办法清洁植物或悬挂篮子中的素苔或树枝?就是想。我很担心,如果我的演出让他们湿透,他们会模具等。爱你的想法。谢谢你。/丽莎

  6. 感谢您的丝绸和塑料花的清洁提示。我确实在普拉特袋里用盐为绿色植物,就像葡萄藤悬挂过的葡萄藤,甚至是一些用丝绸花朵,它对我来说很棒。此外,在温暖的肥皂水中摇滚它们然后漂洗干净的水,让它们在毛巾上干燥(总是先检查它们的颜色跑步或不能抓住它们的形状),但是当他们只需要快速时,我喜欢你的想法除尘,谢谢

  7. i wash my silk flowers by swishing them around gently in warm water and a little bit of dishwashing liquid. they look brand new by the end of it! just lay them on a towel to dry!
