Cleaning Indoor Plants

apartment living apartment therapy australia cleaning DIY fiddle leaf fig indoor plants singapore socks spring cleaning

My house, my greenhouse. Apartment living doesn't mean you should not have your own backyard as such. I've been collecting indoor plants for awhile now and my collection grows bigger and better by the day. I read an article on Apartment Therapy recently and it had ideas for what to do with your lost socks. Weird I know but cleaning plants leaves with a lost sock is the best idea ever! I never knew how much dust they actually get on them. Just slip the sock on dampen it and away you go. The images below speak for themselves. Definitely give this a go. I'd love to know your thoughts and how you clean your plants?   [caption id="attachment_706" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Sock Before clean Sock Before clean[/caption] [caption id="attachment_704" align="aligncenter" width="300"]The best way to clean a leaf The best way to clean a leaf[/caption] [caption id="attachment_705" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Fiddle Leaf fig looking uch better... glossy even.

    What a great idea! With two teenagers in my house, I have plenty of lost socks!
