Winter is almost over and Spring is on the horizon. In Spring, the environment becomes cheerful everywhere including your home and you can not enjoy this joyous weather with your doors and windows closed. But with an open house comes the fear of collecting dust. No matter how much you hate it, cleaning tasks are necessary to make your home presentable and there is no way of escaping it. However, with some nifty tips and tricks, you can easily keep your home dust-free. Who knows – you may even wind up enjoying it.

Use the right Dusting cloths or duster

Using the right kind of dusting cloths or duster is the key

One of the main reasons why your home is not properly cleaned is because of the duster. There are different dusters for different purposes; every one of them has their own specialty. For example, using a feather duster to clean the furniture or showpiece is a common sight. But when it comes to effectiveness, feather dusters are much better at pushing dust than they are at attracting it.

So when it comes to cleaning dust, use microfiber cloths instead. Unlike feathers, microfiber can attract and trap dirt particles without letting go. Plus, you can wash and reuse them again and again.

Use vacuum cleaner

Sometimes, despite giving all the efforts, cleaning dust from places such as the edge of your floor, carpets, and rugs is very hard. No matter how hard you try, there will always be residual dust that can make the whole place dirty very fast. Using traditional tools to clean these residuals is not enough. In such cases, using a vacuum cleaner can make the task a lot easier. When purchasing, consider choosing a powerful one with stronger suction, because the stronger the suction, the more debris it’ll pick up and the less you’ll have to deal with when it does come time to dust.

Get rid of dust collectors

When it comes to collecting dust, some items are particularly better at attracting dust than others. If you want to dust less, it’s important that you take care of these dust collectors.

Frames, figurines, old key rings, books, and other ornate stuff— these items all need to be dusted individually, which can take up a lot of your precious time. One way to tackle this is to reduce your collections. That way you’ll spend less time dusting and more time enjoying the special items you did decide to keep. And try keeping them far from your doors and windows. 

Clean in the right order

It is very important to follow the right order when cleaning the house. Otherwise, it can have the opposite effect. Always clean top to bottom, and that goes for dusting especially. Dust off your high shelves and furniture first, then vacuum the floors to collect up everything that fell to the floor.

Washing your duster when cleaning is another important thing to follow when cleaning dust from your household goodies. It is better to use warm water for cleaning the duster. You can also use detergent to clean cloths and dusters.
