Give Houseplants a Bath

Even potted houseplants require a good rinse from time to time, especially when they become covered with dust or dried out by indoor heating. Group plants all together in the bathtub, preferably on an elevated stand that will keep them off the floor of the tub. Use a showerhead attachment to gently spray the plants all over with tepid water. Allow plants time to drain completely before returning them to their usual spots.
