  • Get a big brown paper bag and a can of salt. Dump the salt into the bag, add some flowers and roll the bag shut, and shake like crazy. Might wanna do this outside. Works wonders on the flowers.

  • I saw on an episode of "How Clean is Your House" with Kim and Aggy that you put salt(a whole can of salt) in a plastic bag, then place your flowers in there and shake them. It worked really well for them lol, but I haven't tried it.

  • Compressed air is expensive and full of chemicals. A soft paint brush works well too and is cheap and chemical free.

  • I say canned air too. Of course I usually have some on hand for my computer. It is kind of expensive, but it lasts quite a while.
