How to Clean Silk Plants

Casa Quickie: Silks Hit the Shower

As much as I disapprove of faux fleurs, I must say . . . nothing blows the cover of silk plants more than a layer of dirt and grime on the leaves. Problem is, the pricey impostors are nearly impossible to keep clean. Who has the time to dust each and every leaf? I sure don't. One easy solution for sprucing up any fake plants in your pad is to simply run them under a cold shower (hot water could melt the glue) for a few seconds. Just take it out of the planter (or hold the planter), put it under the water until it seems clean, shake off the excess, let it dry naturally, and voilà — a clean and (semi-)realistic looking botanical once again. Want to know another secret? I use the same technique to clean off my real houseplants!
