Borax Flower preserver

Submitted by Katie

To dry flowers, place one or two in an airtight container with a layer of borax and cornmeal mixed together (1 part borax to 2 of cornmeal) in the bottom. Leave the container in a cool, dry place. After 7 to 10 days, remove the flowers and dust them with a soft artist's brush.

question about flower preserver Comments By: Diane on 2007-03-04
I would like to know if it can be used several times? If so, how do you get the humidity out of it, before re-using it?

TipKing says: I am afraid I do not know that answer to that. Sorry!
