With so many dusters on the market, figuring out what type of dusting products to use for your home can be taxing. Some products just spread dust around, while others can cause damage to your home fixtures or furniture. To help you choose what dusters and dust solutions are best for your needs, read through our overview of some popular products.
Dusters & Dust Cleaners: Pros and Cons
1. Feather Duster
The feather duster is widely known as the most popular dusting product on the market. This product is one of the easiest to use because of its short handle, which gives you more control when attempting to remove dust from tight areas.
What makes this tool so helpful in hard-to-reach spaces, also works to its disadvantage. It is not able to grab ahold of dust particles very well. Instead, it moves dust around. Because of this, this product is not good for anyone who suffers from allergies. Also, if the feathers come off its points, this duster can become sharp enough to damage your furniture.
2. Swiffer’s 360 Duster
The 360 duster from Swiffer is great for all home-based dusting. Providing all of the control you would get from a smaller, handled duster, the 360 duster has thousands of deep-cleaning fibers that trap dust and allergens so you don’t just spread them around. You can also use it on your furniture without worrying about causing damage.
The Swiffer 360 has been reported as being too lightweight and easily broken by some users.
3. Norpro’s Lambswool Duster
The Lambswool duster contains lanolin that helps trap dust. It measures at 48″ and will reach high surfaces that you cannot reach on your own. It does not scratch surfaces, which makes it great for furniture.
This duster is not adjustable, making it more difficult to have complete control when dusting high areas.
4. Swiffer’s Duster Extender
Swiffer’s Duster Extender is excellent for hard-to-reach spots, such as ceiling fans or other high-arched places in your home. It can extend up to three feet, pivot, and lock into a fixed position, helping you have better control while you trap and lock dust in the more problematic areas of your home.
This product has been reported as fragile by some owners.
5.Scoth-Brite Micro-Fiber Hardwood Floor Mop
This Mop is great for hardwood, laminate, and bamboo floors. It is designed to trap dust and dirt while mopping to give you a more thorough cleaning. This mop is user-friendly and can be used with your favorite wood floor cleaner. The mop head is also machine washable.
While this product’s handle is durable, its mop head has been reported to wear out after just a few washes.
6. E-Cloth’s Deep Clean Mop
This mop uses no chemical solutions. All you have to do is add water. Using E-Fiber cloth technology, this product is able to remove dirt, oil, and grease and effectively kill germs and other bacteria. Its handle is also expandable for difficult-to-reach areas, making it ideal for homes with lots of wooden floors.
This product’s mop heads have been reported as flimsy and pricey to replace.
