What to do when you spill Chrysal cut flower food?
While we can't take responsibility for accidental spills of vases filled with cut flowers and Chrysal cut flower food onto surfaces like carpets or furniture, we certainly empathize when these mishaps occur. We strive to provide as much guidance as possible to mitigate any potential damage.
Firstly, please identify the exact product used and describe the product packaging. This information is essential as different products may necessitate different cleaning approaches.
Chrysal cut flower food primarily contains the following ingredients: sugar, organic acid, and preservatives. The organic acid, a food additive, lowers the pH of the water to about pH 4, similar to the acidity found in carbonated soft drinks. The preservatives are present in such small concentrations that they are unlikely to cause any harm when a spill occurs.
One ingredient, Aluminium sulphate, which was formerly used and is still found in some other cut flower food brands, can cause staining after spillage. If this is the case, it's recommended to consult with a professional carpet cleaner.
Furthermore, it's worth noting that some flowers can release substances into the water that may cause staining if spilled.
Though the chances of staining due to Chrysal cut flower food spills are extremely low, we recommend immediately removing any spills with a clean cloth and rinsing the affected area with plenty of water. Your beautiful flowers should bring joy, not stress over potential spills!
