How to clean greenery (artificial plants)

I have some greenery on top of my kitchen cabinets that need some major cleaning... they are dusty but also have a little grease in them (they are right above the cabinets by the stove).  I was told that Michaels sells a spray to clean these plants.  Does anyone know the name of it or have any suggestions as to what else I can use?

When I had artificial greenery, I cleaned them with just regular dish liquid & water, then let them air dry of course.

Yep!!  Just wash them like dishes in the sink.  Air dry and they're good to go :o)  No need to buy something special.

Place the greenery/flowers in a brown paper bag, add salt and shake.  While shaking the salt will remove the dust and absorb the grease.  If the build up inst too bad this really  does work.  I was taught this early on in my decorating career and stand behind it.
