Rubber Tree Leaves

Anonymous added on September 3, 2011 | Answered

Besides water, what can be used to clean the leaves? I've wiped them with water and cloth, but they are still ugly, not nice and shiny.

"Take plants outdoors on a cloudy day (to avoid sunburn) and wash them down with a sprayer filled with diluted liquid dish soap. Rinse off leaves and let them air-dry. If spots appear on leaves, gently wipe them off. If you like the look of shiny leaves, lightly spray leaf polish or diluted summer oil on the top surface only; you don't need to wipe the leaves."

depends on what is actually on the leaves, u can use soap and water or glass cleaner for grease but this has to be wiped off and rinsed with water.some plants put out a protective coating and the leaves will look dull.rubber trees do this. what removes this coating is a product called pokon or leaf shine. u can usually get it at places like homedepot
