Things You'll Need
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.
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.
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.
