  • Keep your mistletoe cool until you want to use it.
  • Outside in the cold, or in a shed or garage is best. You can spray it with cold water if it looks a bit dry.
  • Basically if these simple instructions are followed you can expect you mistletoe to keep looking fresh for up to a month.
  • Please note, however, as soon as you take it indoors with the central heating on it will start to dry and deteriorate, although saying that you can still get a Christmas kiss under it there are no rules against that.
  • So in the name of keeping it simple, the number one rule to remember is—don’t hang your mistletoe indoors too early.
  • Obviously ingestion of mistletoe is not advised due to its poisonous properties, so be sure to keep it out of reach from children and pets. If this unlikely event occurs we fully suggest seeking medical advice from a professional.
  • Finally, be sure to wash your hands after handling mistletoe, it can get sticky and if you have ever had a mistletoe berry fight, you will know exactly what we mean :)
