Christmas Cactus

Anonymous added on January 18, 2014 | Answered

I have a Christmas cactus and was wondering what the best way to clean it would be. The leaves have water spots and dust on them and it doesn't look pretty. I was told that if you touch the little 'hairs' on the ends, it won't grow anymore. Is there some kind of home remedy that I can try to keep it shiny and healthy looking?
