I live in Arizona and it is very dusty here. I would like to clean the leaves to get the dust off.  What is the best way to do this?

Soft brush or feather-duster.
If that doesn't work for you, take it outside or in the bathtub and wash it off. (Don't use hard water or it may leave spots).
Or carefully wipe with a soft damp cloth.
