How To Clean Your Artificial Christmas Tree Before Decorating

  • First, carefully remove your tree from its box or storage bag. Then, start wiping the tree with a soft, dry cloth or a fiber duster starting from the top, from its branches, trunk, then down to its base. 
  • You can also use a vacuum with a bristle brush used for upholstery or a hand vacuum. Make sure to test a section at the base of the tree first to see if  the vacuum can safely clean the dirt off the branches and not damage the tree. 
  • For pre-lit Christmas trees, clean its branches with a vacuum before wiping each lightbulb with soft, dry cloth carefully.

How To Care For And Clean A White Christmas Tree

Compared to regular Christmas trees, dust and dirt are easily visible on a white Christmas tree. Keep your white tree spotless by cleaning and storing it properly after every holiday season.

  • Same with a regular Christmas tree, follow the general care tips on how to clean it as mentioned above.
  • After cleaning, wrap your tree in clean white paper before storing, then place it inside its storage container. 
  • Avoid using water and other cleaning agents on your tree as these may change or destroy its material, and may invalidate the product warranty.

How To Care For And Clean Frosted Christmas Trees

Frosted Christmas trees require a different kind of care compared to a traditional Christmas tree as there’s no need to dust your frosted tree, since this could very well damage its flocking material which makes it look frosted with snow.

  • First, set up your tree in a cool, dry place and away from humidity and direct heat.
  • Since frosted trees tend to shed, avoid making unnecessary contact against the branches and tips to prevent excess shedding. 
  • Gently compress the branches of your tree, then place it in a secure storage bag to keep the flocking material intact and lessen contact from anything that may cause it to shed.
