For those who can’t seem to keep flowers alive, high-quality artificial flowers can be a great alternative. Fake flowers need little tending to, but will require cleaning now and then. No matter how real the arrangement looks, once those pretty petals accumulate dust they won’t look at-home with your decor. To restore flowers to their former glory, place the fake blooms inside a paper bag and pour in table salt. Close the bag and shake vigorously. The salt will dislodge accumulated dust and dirt.
