The Q&A Archives: Best Way to Clean House Plant Leaves

Question: What is the best way to clean house plant leaves?

Answer: The best way is to gently vaccuum them regularly and then rinse them occasionally in tepid water. If that is not practical, then wipe them with a soft cloth dipped in plain tepid water. An exception to this would be the fuzzy leafed plants such as African violets which are better dusted very gently with a soft paint brush rather than moistened.
