Investing in a preserved flower glass dome is a delightful way to add elegance and nature's charm to your space. Unlike fresh flowers, preserved flowers last for years, maintaining their grace and allure. However, a little care goes a long way in keeping them looking their best. Here's your guide to preserving the beauty of your preserved flower glass dome.
1. Location Matters: Where to Place Your Glass Dome
- Avoid Direct Sunlight: Excessive sunlight can cause colors to fade. Choose a spot away from direct sun.
- Keep Away from Moisture: Humidity can affect the preservation process. Avoid placing the dome near a bathroom or kitchen.
2. Dusting and Cleaning: Gentle Touch Required
- Use a Soft Brush: Regularly dust the glass and flowers with a soft brush to prevent buildup.
- Clean the Glass: A soft, lint-free cloth with a mild cleaner keeps the glass sparkling.
3. Temperature Considerations: Keep it Cool
- Avoid Extreme Temperatures: Extreme heat or cold may damage the flowers. Room temperature is ideal.
4. Handle with Care: Moving and Transporting
- Lift from the Base: Always lift the dome from the base to avoid putting pressure on the glass.
- Secure During Transport: If you need to move your glass dome, secure it in a box with padding.
5. Reviving the Fragrance (If Applicable)
Some preserved flower arrangements come with a gentle fragrance that may fade over time.
- Refresh with a Spray: Use a specially designed preserved flower fragrance spray to revive the scent, following the manufacturer's instructions.
6. When to Say Goodbye: End of Life Care
While preserved flowers last for years, they may eventually show signs of aging.
- Repurpose the Glass Dome: Consider repurposing the glass dome for another decorative arrangement.
- Contact a Professional: Consult with a professional for possible restoration or replacement options.
