Another One Bites the Dust

June 18th, 2008 at 07:35 pm

I'm not decluttering like Disneysteve
...yet! However, I am doing a little bit of spring cleaning. Only a few days left and it will be summer.

I have artificial plants above my kitchen cabinets in baskets. It looks pretty until they become dusty.

Today was such a cool calm weather that I decided to pull them all out onto the deck for a cleaning. I pulled the greenery out of the baskets and literally hosed the dust off them with water. In a short time, they are dry again.

I used a special spray for artificial plants to remove the dust from the greenery. You simply spray until dripping wet and wait to dry. Amazingly, the dust is gone and the leaves are shiny again. In the past I have used a bucket of water and a microfiber cloth to wash each leaf by hand. It is very time consuming.

The spray was $4.97 and I have yet to use half. It is quick and looks nice. Next time, I think I will just try the hose on all of it. How much could water hurt a plastic plant? I'm pretty sure the water would cost less than the spray.

    I don't think water would hurt a plastic plant very much. Smile

    Don't listen to "not into plastic". Plastic plants can look beautiful and very much real when taken care of (as you are doing now). PLus, they last a long time. Sometimes spending $5 for "the real deal" doesn't work if you are placing them in an area with no sunlight and that is difficult to water. Besides, why listen to someone who has to create a user name just to write a comment? They obviously aren't a member here. (Yes, I am sick of reading negative comments by non-members).

    You go Koppur!! Not everyone can keep real plants. I have a mixture of real plants and silks. They are all equally beautiful.

    They are actually silk plants. I can't keep the real ones because of the cats. I prefer to keep the real plants outdoors. The comment will be deleted...after all it is my blog.
