Wash the plant (just using water) to rid it of accumulated dust and grease.
Then polish the leaves using clean old pantyhose.
Using any type of leaf polish simply clogs the pores of the leaves. The polish
residue also becomes a magnet for dust particles.
I don't think the leaf shine products are good for plants. I use
about a 1/4 teaspoon of dishwashing soap in a gallon of warm water and
two sponges to clean houseplants with large leaves, such as
aspidistra. Another way to clean the leaves is to put the plant
outside during a rainy day.
