Do you love dried florals but you do’nt like that wrinkled look and the slightly yellowed coloration? Neither do I.

We’ve found the perfect way to dehydrate our flowers, white, yellow or pink and preserve the texture and color.

Line a small flat box (not plastic) with newspaper and then place a thin, one inch layer of Twenty Mule Team Borax, which is made by the Dial Corporation.

Place your flowers (we used dogwood, still attached to some of the branches) on top of the borax and cover it with another layer, about an inch or so on top of the flowers.

When you remove them, about 6 days later, they are perfectly preserved just as they came from the tree, colors completely intact.

Stand them in a vase or use them for dried flower arrangements.
