If one has been using only a particular type of duster to wipe the various surfaces, objects and fixtures in the house then it is highly possible that one is not doing the dusting as effectively as it should be.
Dusters do come in various forms and types because each one of them is made to be more effective for a particular surface or area. One should know which one works best for what and it can make the dusting more effective than ever but also make it convenient and easier.
Types of dusters
When it comes to duster cloth, here are some major variations that one can find:
While feather duster are one of the least effective ones as duster for regular dusting purposes, they can be handy when it comes to dusting delicate items. The thing with feather duster is that they do not pick up the dust but they can knock it off from the object which is being dusted. While dusting the surfaces, they can merely unsettle the dust which eventually settles back again. The best things to dust with them are delicate items like glassware, picture frames and many other things. They can also clean some intricate places deeper than the other dusters.
Rubber Dust Gloves
They are definitely more convenient choice for regular dusting because one does not need to hold anything with their hands. One can simply wear the gloves and they are effective for wiping the surfaces in a quick swipe. Dust can cling to the rubber which eliminates the chance of transferring any back on cleaned surface. One also will need to rinse them off periodically when one finds them too soiled. Wooden furniture becomes a breeze to dust with the help of rubber gloves and so this is a great surface duster.
This list will be incomplete without mentioning the microfiber dusters. These are arguably the best dusters for regular dusting because they can do that fantastically well as they pick up the dust and hold it with minimal effort. The electrostatic charge which is created by the fibres is the main reason behind their ability to attract dust. They are practical to use and eco friendly as well. One must use it to clean cabinets.
For linen and upholstery a handheld vacuum duster can be a great cleaning device. Vacuum is any day more effective than using a cloth or a rubber glove. When cleaning curtains, one must use this otherwise the dust can settle all over the room. A handheld vacuum duster is quite efficient is removing all the dirt and dust from fabrics conveniently and quickly.
Compressed Air Dusters
In order to clean the places which are extremely hard to reach, one must use compressed air dusters. They can forcefully shoot out air into small spaces or gaps to blast out dust which would otherwise be almost impossible to reach.
One can choose their dusters depending on what areas they need to do the dusting.
