    Use a touch of whole milk. Buff with soft flannel. Don't use windex.

    Your best bet is just to use a soft cloth or a paper towel moistened with plain water. Besides making your rubber plant look better, it will also make it healthier by cleaning the pores of the leaves, which it needs to "breathe." I wouldn't use Windex, and although there are products that are supposed to make the leaves shine, I would avoid those, because they can clog up the leaves' pores. A nice clean leaf is shiny and attractive as it is - no additives needed!

    first off, WINDEX WOULD KILL THE PLANT. Water would do fine, just use a washcloth or some type of towel...the paper towels might be too abrasive for the leaves

    Take a Q tip and dip it in a cup of milk and wash leaves. It will clean them and make them shiny.

    It doesnt matter, I would just use water and a paper towel, or just dust them. If they really need a good cleaning use a spary cleaner, like windex. Good Luck!
