How should you store a 4-leaf clover?
If one day you are lucky enough to find a one, you must keep it. Fortunately, clovers can be very resistant to picking. They only stay in shape without water for a few hours. You then need to press the clover between the pages of a book. You must do this during the day because at night, the clover sleeps and closes its leaves. Likewise, you can leave the clover in the book, but if you want to keep it on you, you will have to laminate it because a dried clover is fragile, and it can break and shatter. By laminating it, you can for example keep it in your wallet and also protect it from the sun and discoloration.
