Don’t Let the Dust Settle

Hoover Woman Dusting a ShelfYour Hoover home should be dust-free at all times. It won’t be easy, but it’s doable. Even more so when many dusters in the market don’t do the job well — instead of trapping and removing, they just move the dust around. What a total waste of time and money! Only the right tools can produce an effective dusting process. 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

Don’t be mistaken; feather dusters aren’t just for the wealthy and affluent! Truth be told, they make for really great dusters since they are durable and all-purpose. And yet, it’s important that you get yourself the right kind. 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. Conversely, cheap feather dusters will flick dust all around the room until the dust settles 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. For delicate surfaces that scratch easily, wool is the dusting tool of choice because it’s so 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

Microfiber dusters are one of the more affordable ones that still work effectively. Coming in different sizes and styles, these dusters achieve one goal: 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 brief and simple. Microfiber is also washable and reusable, making it one of the most economically-friendly dusters around.

Microfiber dusters come in several types. Quite a few are basic hand dusters, with an easy-grip handle that lets you move the duster out of corners and across high shelves. A number of them come with extendable handles to assist you in reaching 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 choice pick would be 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

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. 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. 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. Afterward, feel free to use any of the other dusters to follow through with more dusting!
