How to clean house plants
  • Once a month carry all your houseplants up to the bathroom and stand them all in the bath.
  • Then switch the shower on to a soft spray and just luke warm not freezing cold. Then spray all the plant leaves carefully to remove the dust.
  • Any plants that have been in the kitchen will probably be covered in that greasy kitchen dust. For these after a thorough spraying down with the shower take a natural sponge and gently supporting the leaf underneath with your hand wipe the leaves to remove the greasy sticky dust.
  • Leave the plants standing in the bath for a few hours after cleaning them until they’ve dripped dry.
  • Return the plants to their homes.

This method is great for not only cleaning the plants but giving them a good drink of water too.
