    Wal Mart carries a silk plant cleaner. It is found in the same area as the silk flowers. It is about $5.00 and works great. If you are doing this indoors place an old towel on the floor as there is some dripping.
  • Try to blow off the dust with a blow dryer on COOL or hold back far enough. If that doesn't work then compressed air. Hope this helps

    If the flowers can be removed you can place the flower end in a paper bag with table salt in it. Gently shake the bag. The salt will help remove the dust. You can also use a small clean paintbrush and brush them or use compressed air.

    A can of air, spray the flower with the air until it is clean or you can use a blow dryer, if you use a dryer be careful not to catch the flowers on fire. Without lights you can hose the off in your sink and swish them in some dish water and hose off again, shake off excess water and let them air dry.

    I tried that spray in a can and it worked ok but had to hold them upside down while the stuff dripped everywhere and had to shake it off. I have fake ficus trees, too many leaves to clean by hand, so I use canned air, it works great as long as there's not grease mixed with the dust, like from the kitchen area.
