Does anyone know how to freshen up a white flocked Christmas wreath. I would re-spray it but flocking cannot be purchased anymore.
The problem with a dirty flocked thing is that this is going to show the dust and debris more than a traditional Christmas wreath. The flocking is a substance that is meant to look like snow, which is white. The best idea is to store flocked Christmas things (Christmas wreath, tree) each year so that it is not getting dusty and dirty. While it may take a little bit of time to store this thing properly, it will save you tons of time later when it comes to cleaning. Flocked items need to be stored in special storage bags. The storage bags will block out the debris and dust in the area. Don't use the original box.
You do not want to use any product that is meant to attract the dust (a wipe for the dust), as this can cause the flocking to yellow over time.
If your wreath turns yellow, check the packaging for instructions on how to clean a yellowed flocked Christmas wreath. And if you will, you may contact the manufacturer's customer service department.
You can keep your yellowed wreath in direct sunlight for a couple of hours. In the case of subtle discoloration, a bit of sun can take stains out and restore the wreaths former glory. This is most easily accomplished during sunny spring or summer days.
I found White Flocking Fibers on etsy www.etsy.com/
Buy bagged flocking.
Wet down the entire wreath.
Apply the flocking material.
Wet the wreath again.
Let the wreath dry.
A picture would help to see exactly what you have. You can still buy spray flocking. Santa snow is one of the brands. That may be your best bet! Post back before and after pictures!!
If it is dingy, it is better to discard it. It could be housing dust mites and germs. No one wants that !
