Don’t Let the Dust Settle

Airway Heights Woman Dusting a ShelfMaintenance of a dust-free Airway Heights home can be difficult. This is true especially when a lot of dusters move dust around rather than trapping and removing it. What a total waste of time and money! You need the right tools if you want good dusting. 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. They are a great choice for anyone since they are durable, all-purpose dusters. And yet, it’s important that you get yourself the right kind. If dust is what you want to get rid of, then look for dusters that make use of ostrich down feathers. 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 thing you might want to look into is a wool duster. Natural material with great quality. 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. You may find that wool dusters aren’t too common and accessible in your area, but you can always look for them online.

Microfiber Dusters

For other affordable dusters on the market, you might want to check out microfiber dusters. They’re quite effective, too! Despite being offered in different variations of sizes and styles, these dusters all do the same 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 come in different forms and shapes. Several are plain hand dusters, with an easy-grip handle that lets you steer 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. Window blinds, however, are a different story. They have a duster specifically for them. 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 like an oven mitt, but it has microfiber material designed for wiping down surfaces.

Disposable Dusters

Disposable dusting pads are also another common choice. 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. A good many users like these dusters because it’s straightforward: if it’s visibly dirty, 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 safely spray directly onto whatever it is you are trying to dust. Aside from this, you can keep at your disposal a number of other dusters, as well, for other purposes.
