Exterior Cleaning Method
It’s easy to clean your outdoor artificial hedge when the sun is out to help dry your artificial hedge.
1. Grab your water hose to rinse
Carefully adjust your hose nozzle to spray. If the water pressure is too low, it may take more time and energy to finish up. If the pressure is too high, the foliage may get damaged.
2. Spray foliage and panels
Spray from all directions thoroughly to remove dust and spider webs.
3. Shake off excess water
Remove excess water from your artificial hedge for easy drying.
4. Let it dry under sunlight.
Allow the sun to dry off your artificial boxwood hedge naturally.
Interior Cleaning Method
1. Dust your plants
Unlike real plants, artificial hedges collect dust. Use a feather duster to remove dust and spider webs from the surface of artificial hedges. Lightly dust your artificial boxwood leaves and panels. Be careful not to break the plastic stems on your artificial boxwood.
2. Spray your artificial plant with cleaning spray
For tough dirt that you cannot easily wipe away by the duster or soft cloth, you need a non-abrasive material to do the job. Using a mild detergent or a multi-purpose cleaner, spray one cloth and gently scrub the foliage and panels.
3. Rinse your artificial hedge with warm water
Remove cleaning products from your artificial hedge using warm water.
4. Wipe your plants to dry
When you are through the rinsing out of your artificial hedge, finalize your cleaning by wiping over the stems and leaves using a dry cloth or a soft microfiber cloth.
