Just remembered i had a rainbow lei from when i was a kid and was wondering if it'd be safe to take apart and use a couple flowers in my betta tank if i thoroughly soak them in hot water.
The flowers are on a string and are separated by little pieces of plastic so i don't know if the entire thing would be safe to put in a tank or not.... I'd rather take it apart and make something with it anyways.
Soak them for a few days in water just to make sure they don't bleed or make the water go cloudy, and you should be fine. :) It's only the possible dye's that might be different, but if they don't bleed, then you're safe. :)
After i soaked them in hot water for a looooong time, i poked some spines of 2 of my plastic plants through the tiny holes in the middle of the fabric flowers and stacked them up :D i also set a few on the surface of the water in a couple of my tanks.
one of the plants is in my baby Alice's bowl. She loves exploring! Please excuse the reflections in the bowl photos.
