Your preserved bouquet will benefit a lot if you give it a little tender loving care. These tips will definitely help in making them last for years:
a. Don’t spray directly any glass cleaners to your frame. Instead, spray it on a clean cloth first and use it to remove any dirt, dust etc.
b. Keep it away from direct sunlight. Even though Purpleknot flowers were treated with UV protectant-sealer, keeping it from any form of heat will protect it from becoming brittle and from further having color changes. This also includes direct exposure to lamp light and any form of spotlight.
c. Keep your bouquet in cool, dry place, ideally in temperature not exceeding 27C.
d. Don’t display the bouquet in highly humid areas like carpeted rooms, the kitchen, the bathroom or your basement since preserved flowers may be at risk for insect infestation and molds. Purpleknot ensures that your flowers are treated accordingly and are mold and insect free before we deliver them to you.
“ While infestation occurs in less than 1%, even the cleanest of homes may not be free from Indian Meal Moths and Weevils that can eat up the petals and may damage the flowers beyond repair. These insects can be found in flour, peanuts, bird seed, dog food, breakfast cereals, candies, corn meal, etc . Once infested, it is irreparable so it is important to prevent it from happening by storing your preserved bouquet properly.” -www.preservedpetals.com-
