With What Can I Clean the Leaves From My Yucca Plant?

Anonymous added on September 30, 2012 | Answered

I have my Yucca Plant on my Balcony in the Summer. I want to bring it inside now, but I need to clean the leaves I think, because they look a little gray from the dust by standing on the Balcony. So my question is with what can I clean them?

Normally, wiping them down with a soft, wet cloth is adequate. This article will also help:

In addition to the advice in the above article, I would add that plants are best kept clean on a regular basis, like every time you water. You can dust them with a duster - feathers are increasingly hard to find, but the micro-fiber ones work just fine. Or you can clean them with a soft cloth, even paper towel - put one hand under the leaf to support it, and wipe gently but firmly with the cloth. You might want to use soapy water at first cleaning, since they've been outside all summer.
