You can spritz them with water or wipe them down with a damp cloth. Do not use the commercial sprays intended for cleaning houseplants to make them shine. These merely clog the plant's pores and cause more harm than good.

Rubber trees, or ficus decora, have naturally shiny leaves. Keep your plant leaves free of dust by dusting them with a feather or microfiber duster every week or so. To increase the shine to super levels, you can hand wipe each leaf: put one hand under the leaf to support it, and wipe the top surface gently with a soft cloth or even a paper towel
