Don’t Let the Dust Settle

Southlake Woman Dusting a ShelfEnsuring that your Southlake home is dust-free can be a bit difficult. This is because many dusters move dust around rather than trapping and removing it. This can only lead to time and money wasted. Get yourself the right tools so that you can dust effectively. There are different kinds of dusters available on the market. Pick out the one that best suits your needs.

Feather Dusters

Thought to be fancy, feather dusters aren’t just for the rich. They are a great choice for anyone since they are durable, all-purpose dusters. 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 efficiently capture dust. Although they can be on the expensive side, feather dusters made of other types of feathers or synthetic materials won’t work. On the other end, cheap feather dusters will only flick dust and not actually collect them. Pretty soon dust will fall right back onto your furniture and all around the room.

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 with static and natural lanolin in the fibers. If you’re planning on dusting delicate surfaces that scratch easily, wool is the perfect choice because of how soft it is. Even though they may not be widely available in your locality, wool dusters are sold all over the online market.

Microfiber Dusters

If you’re looking for dusters that are both affordable and effective, look no further than microfiber dusters! 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 speedy and uncomplicated. Microfiber is also washable and reusable, making it one of the most economically-friendly dusters around.

Microfiber dusters come in different forms and shapes. A few are straightforward hand dusters, with an easy-grip handle that lets you guide 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 great tool is the dusting mitt. It may look like an oven mitt, but it’s made out of microfiber and it is used to wipe down surfaces.

Disposable Dusters

One well-known choice for many is the disposable dusting pad. These dusters are made from tiny polyester fibers and rely on static electricity to attract and remove dust. They work effectively, and they all come with 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 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.
