How to Clean Artificial Plants?

If your plant is new and has slight dust, you can quickly clear it with an electrostatic duster, and it will shine as if you have just bought it today. However, dirt can be stubborn for older artificial plants and requires a deep cleaning. So, if your artificial plant also requires deep cleaning, follow the following steps. 

Cleaning of Individual Artificial Flowers

Put each flower end into a pillowcase or a cloth shopping bag. Now add cornmeal or a cup of table salt into the pillowcase. Hold the flowers covering in the pillowcase near the stem and gently shake the flowers. By shaking, the cornmeal or salt will knock the dust particles out of the flowers. Remove the stems one by one, and flick each stem softly to dislodge the salt.
