Flowers in February

After 18 months, we finally have flowers on our African Violet! And so many are coming in. All thanks go to my husband and resident apartment gardener Ronnie. However, how do you deal with dust on the leaves? I know they can't be "washed" or rinsed. Any suggestions?

A soft paintbrush and a slightly obsessive approach? Or delegate the challenge to husband or gardener?

I think I need to go and inspect my plants now; they lead a fairly rough and ready life at the back of the house out of direct sunlight. Maybe they have months of dust (and cat hair) on them!

The brush is an excellent idea - I'll give it a try!
