Best Dusters for A Dust-Free Home

Woman Dusting Kitchen Shelves with a Microfiber DusterMaking your Weeki Wachee home dust-free can be a challenge. This is undoubtedly correct because many types of dusters move dust around instead of trapping and removing it. Not only makes this waste your time, but it wastes money, as well! If you like to dust effectively, you need the right tools for the job. To make sure you’re getting the best value for your money, look more closely at the best dusters you can purchase and the ones that fit best for your dustiest jobs.

Feather Dusters

While they might look remarkable, feather dusters are not only for the rich and fancy. Instead, they produce a durable, all-purpose duster that can cope with many of your dustiest areas. However, it is necessary to choose the right kind. The only feathers that attract dust are ostrich down feathers. Ostrich down feathers are thick and soft and effectively capture dust. While they may be costly, feather dusters created from other kinds of feathers or synthetic materials may not work. Instead, cheap feather dusters will flick dust around the room, where it will settle once again on your furniture moments later.

Wool Dusters

Another natural material that performs great as a duster is a wool. Wool dusters attract and collect dust with static and natural lanolin in the fibers. Wool is also quite fluffy, becoming the perfect material for dusting delicate surfaces or the ones that scratch quickly. Even though wool dusters are not as popular as other types of dusters and can be a little scarce in stores, they are widely available online.

Microfiber Dusters

One of the several affordable types of dusters that still work effectively is microfiber dusters. These dusters occur in a range of sizes and styles, but they all accomplish the same task: removing dust. Microfiber is one of the best dusters since it is composed of tiny filaments that rub together, creating static electricity. This static attracts dust, making dust removal quick and simple. Microfiber is already washable and reusable, making it one of the most economically-friendly dusters around.

There are lots of different styles of microfiber dusters. Others are simple hand dusters, with an easy-grip handle that allows you to maneuver the duster into corners and across high shelves. Some of these also have extendable handles to allow you to reach the tops of door frames and photo frames. One of the numerous creative styles of duster is one made specifically for window blinds. Designed with three prongs, this microfiber duster slips between the slats and grabs dust on both sides with every swipe. Another creative choice is dusting mitt. Built much like an oven mitt, but with microfiber material, you slip the mitt over your hand and wipe down your surfaces.

Disposable Dusters

One common kind of duster is disposable dusting pads. These dusters are made up of tiny polyester fibers and rely on static electricity to attract and remove dust. Both name brand and generic brand dusting pads work the same way and usually come in either dusting kits with a reusable handle or packs of refill pads. Many individuals prefer these dusters because you use them until they are visibly dirty and then throw the pad away.

Compressed Air

Lastly, if you want 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 directly onto the area to be dusted, allowing you to blow the dust out safely. You can then follow up with one of the other types of dusters to remove anything that remains on the item’s surface.
