How can I clean a flower arrangement that stays outside?

I have a roadside memorial for my LH. Beside it is a large silk flower arrangement that has gotten heartbreakingly filthy over the past year and a half. It was expensive and I don't have them money to buy a new one right now. Is there anything I can do to salvage it? It is so intertwined with vines I'm not sure I can remove it. Thanks for suggestions.

  • If it's made for being outdoors than it must be okay to get it wet. Is it near a hose that you could spray it off with a bit of detergent water then rinse?

    You could try cutting the vines back and removing the flower arrangement and shaking it in a bag of salt....that's what I do for indoor arrangements. The salt is abrasive and will do a pretty good job on the dirt.

    Those are my thoughts....
