Dust is an unavoidable nuisance in any home. Particles of dirt, cloth fibers and even dead skin cells combine to form the dust that will quickly coat the tables, shelves and objects in our houses. When you need the right tools for dust removal, consider some of the following products.
- Aerosol sprays: The most common tool for removing dust has been aerosol sprays such as Pledge, Endust and related brands. They are applied to a cleaning cloth or directly to the surface being dusted, and boost the cloth's ability to pick up and hold dust particles.
- Dusting cloths: Commercially made dusting cloths have become more popular in recent years. These cloths are pretreated with dust-grabbing substances and make it unnecessary for you to introduce aerosol sprays or other chemicals into the dusting process. Unscented and disposable cloths are effective and long lasting tools for dust removal.
- Sweepers and dusters: Many households now use smaller sweepers and dusters to remove dust from floors, window blinds, ceiling fans, upper corners of rooms and other locations that are normally hard to reach. The Swiffer SweeperVac is a popular choice for cleaning wood and tile floors. The unit combines a sweeper and a vacuum that picks up dust and other material more effectively than either could alone. The Swiffer Dusters Extender uses a multi-fiber cleaning head on the end of a handle than can extend up to 3 feet. The versatile cleaning fibers easily capture dust without moving it around or sending it back into your indoor air.
