Cleaning a Flocked Wreath?

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.
You do not want to try to vacuum this as it could pull the flocking right off.
The best idea is to use a Swiffer dust wipe and lightly grab the dust off of the branches.
There are those people who state that they use air to blow on this to get the dust off which is an option, but it cannot be high powered or it will tear up the flocking on the wreath.

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.
Sunlight alone may not be effective, so mix 3 parts white vinegar with 1 part water and spray it onto affected parts of the wreath. Make sure it is in direct sunlight for a minimum of 12 hours. And through the reaction of vinegar and sunlight, the wreath will be bleached white.

I found White Flocking Fibers on etsy
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 !
