Preserved flowers are made from real blooms that have undergone a high-technology
process that transforms them into lasting display pieces that require almost no maintenance.
The flowers’ natural beauty, texture, and soft natural touch are maintained.
Depending on storage or environmental conditions, preserved flowers
generally have a shelf-life of up to 3-5 years when stored in dry and cool conditions.
The more humid and warm the environment is, the shorter it’s shelf life will be.
Follow these tips to maximize the life of your preserved blooms:
- Keep them away from sunlight, humid, or wet environment.
- Do not water preserved flowers. When they come in contact with water,
it will absorb the moisture and cause the petals to look translucent or have damp spots.
- Keep them dry and clean. Dust them off by blowing them with a hair dryer on cool setting or
use a soft bristle brush to gently brush off dust. Do not blow them with your lips as moisture may get in contact with the petals.
- If you accidentally wet your flowers, just leave them to dry in an air-conditioned room.
