How to clean eucalyptus

My coworker is retiring and gave me her eucalyptus arrangement that was special to her. It was passed on to her when her sister died of cancer. I am not talking about a plant, but rather cuttings. These cuttings are over 15 years old and still look beautiful and still emit eucalyptus scent. I rubbed one of the leaves and the smell was amazing. The cuttings are dusty so I need to learn about how to properly clean them. My coworker suggested picking up a bottle of spray cleaner made for silk plants, but that doesn't seem right to me because this is not a silk plant. I am wondering if anybody here knows how to clean the dust from 15 year old eucalyptus cuttings.
