Lei Care Instructions

All Leis:

Unpack carefully and immediately.

Keep fresh leis away from heat sources and avoid temperatures below 45 F.

Store them on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator. (A vegetable bin lined with newspaper works very well). Set your refrigerator on its warmest setting.

Mist the leis with fresh water and put them back in the box (or keep wrapped in the plastic covered with newspaper). Store them on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator. Set your refrigerator on its warmest setting.

Vanda Orchid Leis:

Mist the leis with fresh water and put them back in the box, but not in the plastic. Store them on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator. Set your refrigerator on its warmest setting.

Mist the leis with fresh water lightly if they look dry, and put them back in the box, but not in the plastic. Store them on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator. Set your refrigerator on its warmest setting.

Set the leis out in the form you would like them to dry in – flat, curved, or hanging.

Mist the leis with fresh water and put them back in the box, but not in the plastic. Store them on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator. Set your refrigerator on its warmest setting.

Do not mist the leis. Place leis back in the box (or keep wrapped in the plastic covered with newspaper). Store them on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator. Set your refrigerator on its warmest setting.

Later, the Many-colored Haku Lei may be dried out and displayed – it will keep most of its color. The Hawaiian custom is to tie a haku lei to a hat, like hat band, and wear the dried lei that way for many years.
