Leaf Polishing, it's a thing.

Rubber Trees, ZZ Plants, and Broad Leafed Philodendrons are just a few of the plants that you might find yourself looking at one day thinking, "how did this plant get so dusty?" It's not your fault, dust is dust. There is another thing that is pretty unsightly on plant leaves, the white funky calcium deposits that remain from overhead waterings at the greenhouses. Super easy fix. At the shop when I see this on a plant, and want to clean it up, I use Neem Oil, a little bottle goes a long way. If you ever find yourself without need oil, I mean, who has that in the medicine cabinet? You can substitute Neem with your own household made deal though. If you have a Castile type soap like Dr. Bronners, you can put a few drops into a small little dish, add water, mix it up, and use a paper towels to dip into the mixture. Then just apply to leaf, and wipe off. Put on your sunglasses, because the blinged up shine of the plant will be amazing!
