Don’t Let the Dust Settle

Summerville Woman Dusting a ShelfYour Summerville home should be dust-free at all times. It won’t be easy, but it’s doable. This is because many dusters move dust around rather than trapping and removing it. This results in a lot of time and money wasted. Get yourself the right tools so that you can dust effectively. Good thing is, there are lots of dusters to choose from, so you can make sure you get the one that you’re looking for.

Feather Dusters

Even though it seems as though they’re meant for the grand mansions, feather dusters are actually for everyone. “Why?” you ask, because these dusters are super durable, and they are all-purpose! However, it’s wise to pick out the right kind. Not all feathers are all the same. For example, the only ostrich down feathers attracts dust. Ostrich down feathers are thick and soft and really capture dust. Although they can be on the expensive side, feather dusters made of other types of feathers or synthetic materials won’t work. Instead, cheap feather dusters will flick dust everywhere and it will soon be on your furniture.

Wool Dusters

Another natural material that you should consider is wool. Wool dusters attract and collect dust with static and natural lanolin in the fibers. For delicate surfaces that scratch easily, wool is the dusting tool of choice because it’s so soft. If you don’t find any wool dusters in your local stores, you can choose to purchase them online, too.

Microfiber Dusters

For other affordable dusters on the market, you might want to check out microfiber dusters. They’re quite effective, too! Though they come in many sizes and styles, these dusters are up to the task of removing dust. Microfiber works so well because it is made of tiny filaments that rub together, creating static electricity. This static attracts dust, making dust removal fast and simple. Microfiber is also washable and reusable, making it one of the most economically-friendly dusters around.

Microfiber dusters are manufactured in a variety of styles. Several are plain hand dusters, with an easy-grip handle that lets you steer the duster out of corners and across high shelves. A few also come with extendable handles to aid you to reach the tops of door frames and photo frames. There is, however, a certain kind of duster that is very specific for window blinds. Designed with three prongs, this microfiber duster slips between the slats and grabs dust on both sides with every swipe. Another excellent alternative is the dusting mitt. It’s very much like an oven mitt, but it is made out of microfiber, so it’s really good for wiping down surfaces.

Disposable Dusters

A disposable dusting pad is another one to consider. These dusters are made from tiny polyester fibers and rely on static electricity to attract and remove dust. Whether you opt for the name brand or the generic ones, these dusting pads essentially work the same way; and, they come in either dusting kits with a reusable handle or packs of refill pads. Numerous users prefer to use these dusters because they can easily throw the pad away once it’s visibly dirty.

Compressed Air

Finally, if you need to dust delicate electronic devices or small crevices, one of the best dusters you can use is compressed air. The compressed air comes in cans that you can spray onto whatever surface or pocket you’re trying to dust. You can use this in conjunction with other dusters, as well, to make sure you get a thorough cleaning done.
