Does anyone have a recommendation for cleaning the leaves of newly purchased plants? I'm hesitant to use soap b/c of left over residue...

Thanks!

Yea hot soapy water should work. I just put mine in the shower for 10-15 mins with warmer water. Are u worried about bugs and pesticides or just dust and dirt?

Has anyone used those anti-pesticide sprays you can get at the grocery store? I think one of them is called Fit??

Pesticides...after all the work I am putting into my rescued veiled, I don't want to chance it....
I would use hot soapy water. If you go online there is ratios on there for killing aphids, I think it's just a few drops of dish soap and the rest water in a spray bottle. Completely drench the plant and don't forget the under side. Let it sit then rinse with regular water. Hope this helps

Never tried one, most likely just more chemicals that neutralize the pesticides I wouldn't trust it
