I love having real plants in my home. They don’t always last a really long time, but I (and my brown thumb) sure enjoy them while they’re healthy. One of the things I don’t like is that they, along with everything else in our homes, get dusty.
I love orchids and have them all over the house. (I’ve even decorated them for Halloween) but with those broad, flat leaves, the dust will really show if you don’t clean them properly. Since I can barely remember to water the plants, I really didn’t want to be thinking a lot about dusting them.

Well I just came across a trick that sounded super weird, but works like a charm. I used an every day kitchen item to wipe down the leaves. It took off all of the dust, made the leaves nice and shiny, and actually seems to be repelling dust from resettling on the leaves. (Which means less dusting for me! Yay!)
