Best Dusters for A Dust-Free Home

Woman Dusting Kitchen Shelves with a Microfiber DusterGetting your North Richland Hills home to stay dust-free can be a challenge. This is certainly the case because many types of dusters move dust around and instead of trapping and removing it. Not only does this waste your time, but it wastes money, as well! If you’d like to dust effectively, you have to provide the right tools for the job. To be sure you’re getting the best value for your money, it is important to identify the best dusters you can purchase and which ones function well for your dustiest jobs.

Feather Dusters

Even if they may seem notable, feather dusters aren’t just for the rich and fancy. Rather, they create a durable, all-purpose duster that can face most of your dustiest areas. However, it is imperative 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. Despite the fact that they can be on the costly side, feather dusters made of different kinds of feathers or synthetic materials won’t work. The reality is, cheap feather dusters will flick dust around the room, where it will settle once again on your furniture moments later.

Wool Dusters

One more natural material that functions very well as a duster is wool. Wool dusters attract and collect dust with static and natural lanolin in the fibers. Wool is also very smooth, making it the perfect material for dusting delicate surfaces or the ones that scratch immediately. Although wool dusters are not as widely known as other types of dusters and possibly a bit scarce in stores, they are widely available online.

Microfiber Dusters

Another affordable type of dusters that works effectively is microfiber dusters. These dusters come 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 trouble-free. Microfiber is also washable and reusable, making it one of the most economically-friendly dusters around.

There is a wide range of different styles of microfiber dusters. Others are simple hand dusters, with an easy-grip handle that helps you maneuver the duster into corners and across high shelves. Some of them also have extendable handles to allow you to reach the tops of door frames and photo frames. Probably the most creative style of duster is one intended 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 alternative is a dusting mitt. Designed just the same oven mitt, but with microfiber material, you slip the mitt over your hand and wipe down your surfaces.

Disposable Dusters

One common variety of duster is disposable dusting pads. These dusters contain 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 regularly come in either dusting kits with a reusable handle or packs of refill pads. Most users enjoy these dusters because you use them until they are visibly dirty and then throw the pad away.

Compressed Air

At long last, 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 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.
