Don’t Let the Dust Settle

Jenks Woman Dusting a ShelfMaintenance of a dust-free Jenks home can be difficult. This is true especially when a lot of dusters move dust around rather than trapping and removing it. This not only serves to waste your time but your money too! You need the right tools if you want good dusting. Make it a point to really go through a variety of dusters so that you can pick and choose one that will suit your needs.

Feather Dusters

Feather dusters are not only for the high and lofty. Not just for the rich, feather dusters are great at what they do since they are all-purpose and very durable. Even so, you have to look for the right kind. For example, ostrich down feathers. These are the only kind of dusters that actually attract dust. Ostrich down feathers are thick and soft and adequately capture dust. Although they can be on the expensive side, feather dusters made of other types of feathers or synthetic materials won’t work. As is, cheap feather dusters will flick dust around but not attract it. All it does is move it around until you realize the dust is scattered all over the room and right back onto 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. Wool is also excellent for dusting delicate surfaces that scratch easily since it’s very soft. If you don’t find any wool dusters in your local stores, you can choose to purchase them online, too.

Microfiber Dusters

Another affordable duster you might want to consider are microfiber dusters. Even though these dusters are offered in different styles and sizes, they all do the job 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 swift and easy. 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. A number of them are hand-dusters, with an easy-grip handle that lets you operate the duster out of corners and across high shelves. There are those that are built with extendable handles to make it easier for you to reach the tops of door frames and photo frames. With window blinds, though, you might need another duster — there are those specifically built for that. Designed with three prongs, this microfiber duster slips between the slats and grabs dust on both sides with every swipe. Another creative choice is dusting mitt. It’s like an oven mitt, but it has microfiber material designed for wiping down surfaces.

Disposable Dusters

One duster that’s finding itself popular in many homes is the disposable dusting pad. These dusters are made from tiny polyester fibers and rely on static electricity to attract and remove dust. Name brand or not, these types of dusters all achieve the same goal. They also come in either dusting kits with a reusable handle or packs of refill pads. A lot of people find this duster convenient because of how easy it to use. Once it’s visibly dirty, you basically just throw the pad away.

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 to remove dust from whatever area you want. And then, you can opt to use the other types of dusters to clean the remaining areas where they apply.
