If you don't have an aerosol spray, you can also use good old soap and water. Put warm soapy water in a large enough basic. Dip the flowers and slosh them around a bit to remove the dust. Air dry or tap dry with a clean cloth.
2. Silk flowers usually come with really long stems. Cut the stems to the desired length. Leaves are also often removed.
