Don’t Let the Dust Settle

Clarksville Woman Dusting a ShelfConstantly keeping your Clarksville home dust-free can be challenging. What makes it more difficult is when dusters move the 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. In order to get the best value for your money, make sure to check out a wide array of dusters and pick out the one that you think will do the job for you.

Feather Dusters

Thought to be fancy, feather dusters aren’t just for the rich. Truth be told, they make for really great dusters since they are durable and all-purpose. Still, you should always take your time to find the right one. For example, ostrich down feathers. These are the only kind of dusters that actually attract dust. Ostrich down feathers are thick and soft and successfully capture dust. Although they can be on the expensive side, feather dusters made of other types of feathers or synthetic materials won’t work. Alternatively, cheap feather dusters will flick dust all over the place, including your furniture.

Wool Dusters

Wool is another excellent option if you’re in the market for dusters made out of natural material. Wool dusters attract and collect dust due to static and natural lanolin in the fibers. Known for its softness, wool is the prime choice for dusting delicate surfaces that scratch easily. If you find that wool dusters are not readily available in your local stores, they are surely in stock in online shops.

Microfiber Dusters

Microfiber dusters are one of the more affordable ones that still work effectively. 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 quick and smooth. Microfiber is also washable and reusable, making it one of the most economically-friendly dusters around.

Microfiber dusters come in different forms and shapes. There are those that are ordinary hand dusters, with an easy-grip handle that lets you direct the duster out of corners and across high shelves. Quite a few of them have extendable handles that allow you to reach the tops of door frames and photo frames. But, for window blinds, there is a specific duster built for those. Designed with three prongs, this microfiber duster slips between the slats and grabs dust on both sides with every swipe. Another choice pick would be the dusting mitt. It’s similar to an oven mitt, but it has microfiber material making it the perfect tool 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. Even though different brands offer them, these dusters all work the same way. They come in either dusting kits with a reusable handle or packs of refill pads. Several users prefer this duster because it’s simple to use. 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 spray onto the surface you’re trying to dust. And then, you can opt to use the other types of dusters to clean the remaining areas where they apply.
