How to Clean a Fake White Christmas Tree

Save

If Christmas rolls around and your fake white Christmas tree looks a little dusty or yellow, you'll want to clean and freshen it up before you decorate. Here are some easy steps to cleaning your fake white Christmas tree.

Things You'll Need

  • Feather Duster
  • Spray Bottle
  • Water
  • Vinegar
  • Sunlight

Cleaning a Fake White Christmas Tree

  • Remove your Christmas tree from storage. Use a feather duster or something similar to remove any dust or particles that may be lingering on the branches from storage.

  • If the tree is not assembled, assemble it. Carry it outside.

  • Fill the empty spray bottle with three parts vinegar and one part water. Shake well to mix.

  • In the sunlight, spray all of the branches of the tree with your vinegar and water solution. Make sure all branches are coated.

  • Leave your tree in the sunlight for at least 12 hours. The sunlight will naturally bleach out the areas where the vinegar and water solution has been sprayed.

  • Once the tree has dried and been cleaned, bring it inside and enjoy.

Tips & Warnings

  • This method works best when it is warm and sunny outside. If you live in a climate that is cold during the winter, think ahead and clean your tree in the summer. Store your tree in a cool, dry place.
  • Never use bleach to spray on your tree. Its chemical properties will damage the branches.
