How to Clean Silk Plants
I am great at growing silk plants. Every other kind seems to die
on me! Only problem is that they do get dusty. Have you seen
the new aerosol spray cans for cleaning them? That's all we need
is another cleaning product in our cupboards.
Here is an alternative. Take a spray jar and mix it with one part
vinegar and two parts water (or if you already have something
similar made up- use that). Spray a very light coat on your silk
plants (you may want to take them outside to do it). This should
remove the dust accumulation on your plants.
