Default Re: How to singe WHITE flowers without getting black on them

I have heard of some gals trimming the burnt/black edges off. That would leave a UN-singed spot though, BUT you could then try to re-singe that spot?

OM GOSH, what a GREAT idea! My hubby has a heat gun, that he bought from harbor freight, CHEAP! I need to try this and see if it works!
