  • YOu can dip them in salt. There is a cleaner. You could use canned air, like for a keyboard. I dip mine in water.

  • spray can air like the computer dusters.. it works and is just compressed air so natural {note : never use dusters on your computers it can kill them}

  • Just Spray some Windex on them or whatever kind of Window Cleaner you have & let it dry- They will perk right up:)

  • I've always used salt. Put a couple of tablespoons in a bag, put the bouquet in (flowers down), close the bag and swish/shake for a few minutes.
