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.
