Redecker Leaf Cleaning Plant Brush


Dust will quickly collect on houseplants, especially those with large leaves such as fiddle-leaf fig (Ficus lyrata), cheese plant (Monstera deliciosa), aspidistra (Aspidistra elatior) and yucca (Yucca elephantipes). Dust makes the leaves appear dull and prevents them from photosynthesising properly.

Simply press the two goat hair brushes together using the stainless steel tongs and pass them gently over the leaves to clean them. It's fun and surprisingly therapeutic. I also use this brush for cleaning the glass droplets on my chandeliers - it works like a dream.

This is one of those household items you never knew you needed but won't be able to live without. 

  • Beautifully designed brush for cleaning houseplant foliage
  • Overall dimensions: 35cm x 8cm x 4.5cm
  • Made from stainless steel, oiled pearwood and goat hair
  • A fantastic gift for any plant parent

This design of this unique brush was inspired by brushes used in the orangeries of Emperor William, King of Prussia, in the 19th Century.

The soft brush hairs may be cleaned using lukewarm water with mild detergent or shampoo. Rinse thoroughly and dry naturally away from direct heat then comb the hairs before storing the brush flat or suspended from a hook.
