How do you clean dust off of artificial trees and plants?
By Doris from Sparta, TN
I stick them in the shower every now and then. I have also heard that using the low heat on a hair dryer works, but to me giving them an occasional shower and leaving them there while they drip dry, is the easiest and fastest way to do it. (11/12/2009)
I put them outside in a good rain. (11/12/2009)
For an artificial plant/flower that is very large place a discarded knee high hose over the end of your vacuum attachment to remove dust. If the plant needs more cleaning place a large trash bag under the plant and spray with ammonia and simply wipe clean.
For small artificial plants simply douse them up and down in soapy water maybe with a little ammonia or vinegar added and allow to dry. Thanks. (11/13/2009)
If they are small plants that are dusty you can get canned air to blow the dust off. I like the suggestion about the shower, but be sure the pot and whatever is in the pot as soil are water resistant or protected. (11/13/2009)
I put the small artificial plants in a big paper bag, throw in a hand full or so of salt and shake well. (11/16/2009)
