  • I have heard to wipe lightly with mayo, but I am just not convinced. I have also seen to use a bit of milk in water. I don't like the idea of using anything that might leave a food residue, though. There are products that you can buy at a florists that are for shining leaves. For silk or plastic, you can wipe with some endust or spray and shine dusting cleaner.
