Cleaning Silk Flowers

I reminded myself of this tip today when I was sprucing up my bathroom. I found it years ago on the internet, don't remember where. If you have silk flowers that have gotten a bit dusty, you can put them in a bag with a handful or two of cornmeal, and shake the closed bag around for a bit. When you remove the flowers, the dust will be gone. Any residue left from the cornmeal is pretty easy to remove.

I have heard that salt in a bag cleans silk flowers too.

I've had good luck with rinsing them under the faucet, shaking the water off, and hanging them to dry above the laundry tub.
