Dusting: is it really anyone’s favorite chore? I didn’t think so! I’m one of those homeowners that hates this chore so much that I let my furniture go for a little too long before I get to dusting. Which in the end, probably makes this chore even worse! Although dusting is never really very “fun,” I was determined to make my most-dreaded chore a bit better! Are you ready? These dusting hacks will blow your mind!
Looking for an easy way to dust lightbulbs? A dash of rubbing alcohol on a microfiber cloth will “lighten” things up in no time!
Dusty ceiling fans can become a huge mess in no time. Slip a pillowcase over the fan blade and collect the dust inside.
I can’t be the only one who has forgotten to dust their bathroom exhaust fan, you know, a time or two (or three…) again. Use a spray can of air to remove dust from bathroom fans.
I know, this seems absolutely crazy, but if your indoor plants have seen well, shinier days, use Mayo! After dusting, squirt a bit of mayo on a toothbrush to make waxy leaves shine again.
Dust gathers on fabric surfaces too! Don’t forget about them! Instead, run a lint roller over fabric surfaces. It will immediately trap the dust!
The worst part of dusting electronics is all of the static cling! Prevent it by dampening a microfiber cloth with a bit of fabric softener. Prepare to be amazed!
Forget about using a feather duster to tackle your blinds! Instead, wrap a microfiber cloth around a pair of barbecue tongs. Simply “clamp” onto the blind, and slide. The dust practically falls away!
Dusting the baseboards is another one of the worst chores, EVER. Instead of crawling around on your hands and knees, dragging a murky bucket full of water and a sponge, reach for your dryer sheets! A single dryer sheet goes a long way to remove any dirt, grime, and dust from your baseboards. But, really!
Dust, dirt, and grime lurking on your keyboards? Clean things up with a Magic Eraser. It’s gentle enough for electronics, but tackles just about anything lurking on those keys!
I am a huge fan of my Swiffer Wet Jet. I’ve been using one for years, but I know all too well how expensive the mop pads are! Next time you need to replace one, wrap a fuzzy sock around your mop instead. It picks up dust easily, and it’s cheaper!
