Don't you hate how dusty fake plants get? And then they are such a pain to dust. Well tonight I learned a fun little trick from my fabulous mother in law.
She was over decorating my house (you read that right...I laid out all my decor and she decorated) and she saw my ultra dusty plants (to my defense they had been in storage for 5 months...ok lets be honest they would have been dusty regardless). She asked for a bottle of hair spray. I looked at her and asked why she wanted hairspray. She said that when she worked at a store years ago she noticed that the ingredients in those silk cleaners were the same as hairspray, but hairspray was much, much cheaper.
So here's how you clean those pesky fake plants.
First you need an ultra dusty plant. This picture does the plant no justice. Just trust me when I say that it was really dusty.
Now you take your dusty plant and take your cheap hairspray (I had Suave on hand:) and spray it all over the plant. Be sure to flip your plant over so you can get every side of the leaves. Then you will take your plant (after spraying it all over) and give it a good shake. And WAH-LA...a nice, shiny plant.
As you can see from the picture above the difference it made is AH MAZING. Not only is my plant green, but it's nice and shiny.Pin It
