How Do You Use a Duster?

Dear FlyLady,

I’ve written before and this may be a silly question, but I have been wanting to buy the dusters for sometime, but am limited on my budget.

What duster is used for what?

I hate to dust because it was always something I was forced to do because my mom hated to dust. I want to make if fun for both me and my kids. I just don’t really know the first thing about feather dusters as I was always made to use pledge and a rag.

Does the size matter? Any feedback is welcome.

Dear Trying to FLY in PA,

We all know about being forced to dust the way our mother’s wanted us to do it! We do not have to be our mothers to dust! We can do it our way! Feather dusters are an amazing tool that helps us to have fun and at the same time get the job done!

They don’t just move the dust around they pick it up with all of their thousands of tiny feathers. Each plume is made up of these little feathers. They do all the work, so you don’t have to!

I like to hold my duster as if it were a pencil! Then with little quick flicks of the duster; the feathers surround the items on your tables and pick up the dust so you don’t have to pick up the item. Did you know that dust does not get under the items on your tables; just around them.

If you use your duster every day then you will never have to see dust again. Isn’t that what our routines do for us! When we develop habits our homes clean themselves. Just a few short minutes in the morning and then in the evening along with picking up after yourself and your house can be on automatic pilot too!

Yes size does matter if you are vertically challenged. Our Extreme Duster is 24 inches long and it can reach new heights. It can also reach the floor without you having to bend over!


Here are our dusters. They make dusting fun! Add in our Detailed Duster and our car duster and dusting can finally be fun!
