My monster aloe vera plant keeps collecting dust, and I always have to wash it off with the Clorox disinfecting wipes because it collects dust easily. I would like to use that Pledge to prevent it from collecting dust unless it will harm the plant.

Best Suggestion

I’m no botanist, but a plant breathes through it’s leaves. If you cover them with wax, they won’t be able to do that. Likewise, if you clean them with bleach wipes, that’s got to be a little toxic. There’s that stuff you can buy to clean residue off fruits and vegetables, that might work. Best wishes to your poor plant.
