Tired of finding dust bunnies in your home? Removing dust from your home can seem like a relentless task. Here are tips on how to remove dust in your home.
According to an article at goodhousekeeping.com, “How to Clean Dust”
“Sure, a feather duster may look fancy or even fun to use. But when tackling serious dust and dirt, skip the classic sweep — it’ll only move particles around, not pick them up. Instead, capture dust with a soft cloth dampened with water, microfiber dusters, or electrostatic dusters (like the Swiffer, which holds the Good Housekeeping Seal). For ceiling-to-floor cleaning (you should work from top down), a vacuum with multiple attachments is the most efficient tool. But for hard-to-reach spots or other problem jobs, you need a more targeted strategy:
Computers, TVs, DVD players, stereos, and printers are notorious dust magnets. Always unplug the equipment before cleaning. A gentle swipe with a microfiber cloth usually does the job, while a soft, long-handled brush will collect dust from crevices. Be sure to vacuum dust from around cords and vents because, along with pet hair, it can clog machines or outlets.
To get at dust trapped in tiny nooks and intricate carvings, use a clean natural-bristle paint or makeup brush, then wipe with a microfiber cloth.
Put beanbag critters, teddy bears, or fabric dolls into a large plastic bag with a cup of baking soda. Secure the top, then take outside and shake well. The baking soda and static will draw out the soil and dust. Remove items one at a time, shake off the clumps of baking soda, and vacuum the rest using a brush attachment.” To read the entire article click here.
