Cleaning Houseplants

Martha Stewart Living, January 2004

Plants need showers, too, when dusty or dried out by indoor heating. Use a shower-head attachment to spray large plants lightly with tepid water. For small, delicate plants, wrap the pots in paper towels (secured with a clip), then turn plants upside down, gently swishing the leaves in a pot of water.
