I saw this post on Hometalk. How to clean your house plants with milk.

I have some dusty house plants that I cleaned with milk today.
Dusty plant number one: A Grape Ivy - Before.
After the milk treatment. Shiny and clean.
Dusty plant number two: Heart Leaf Philodendron - Before.
After the milk treatment and a big haircut. Also shiny and clean.
Dusty plant number three: Prayer plant - Before.
After the milk treatment. Not so good. The Prayer plant dried with milk residue, and I ended up wiping them off with plain water, several times.
All back in place in front of the fireplace.
The Grape Ivy got a little trim too. It loses a few leaves over the long, dark winter, but fills in nicely in the spring and summer.
My living room is on the north side of my house and even with two large windows, most houseplants near the fireplace don't do well, with the exception of the Grape Ivy and the Heart Leaf Philodendron. Ivies don't last long. The plants on the mantel are faux.
Have you ever tried milk to clean your houseplants?
