Cleaning an Artificial Christmas Tree

Does anyone have any idea how to clean an artificial Christmas tree? We have had one for about 5 years and it is horribly dirty and dusty.

You might be able to use your garden hose to clean off the tree. Then move the tree into your garage so the branches don't develop ice cycles while sitting in the cold air.

My sister-in-law and her husband hated to decorate their artificial tree every year. So after the Christmas season they laid a large white sheet over the decorated tree and raised it up into their attic.

Then the following Christmas they lowered the tree from the attic and they had a ready decorated tree.

My sister-in-law and her husband are divorced, but the decorated Christmas tree had nothing to do with their marriage problems. LOL! :o)

If your blow dryer has a cool setting use that.

That is a great, worksaving idea!

Maybe they had a war about who dreamed up that brilliant idea! LOL

If you have a good vacuum cleaner, use it with a light brushing.

I was thinking that you could use the same principle in cleaning your tree as I've seen listed many places for cleaning artificial flowers.

Place the tree in a large bag, sprinkle with salt, tie closed and shake. Untie, shake off excess salt and remove the bag. It is suppose to remove the dust and dirt.

I think it's worth a try.

Lay the branches in the bath filled with warm mildly soapy water, so stand it up in the shower and turn on the water.

The best way to clean a tree (not prelit) is to use 1/2 cup of white vinegar to 1 gallon of warm water. Use a lint free cloth and wring it out and wipe off branches. Will dry quickly and once dry, vinegar smell disappears, and smells so clean. To keep fresh and free of insects and humidity, mix 1/2 tsp of baking soda and 1/2 tsp of borax in a cheesecloth and tie shut; put in box with tree. This prevents any water damage to tree and does not void warranty. Then the next Christmas, all you have to do is decorate!
