Help Me Understand The Difference

Dear FlyLady,

Could you help me figure out how the detail duster and the feather duster are different? Is it just a matter of personal style preference or do they actually do two different things? Similar question about the Chenille mop head and the microfiber cloth that comes with the FlyMop. I have the latter which I love and am just ordering refills for. I’m going through a SHE attack where I have my shopping cart all filled out but the hand won’t click the checkout button because I’m worried about making the wrong choice 🙁 Would you help me out?



Dear Yamuna,

We love our feather dusters. I have used an ostrich feather duster for 15 years. With three dogs and two cats in our home dust comes in every time we open the door for those precious faces. I learned early that two minutes feather dusting on a daily basis kept dust from getting so bad that you could write in it. It is fast, easy and fun!

This is daily maintenance dusting. Each week we are in a different zone, this is when we do our detailed cleaning with our zones missions. That is why we developed a detailed dusting mitt. So to answer your question; I use both of them; one daily and the detailed dusting mitt weekly according to our missions.

Now for the FlyLady Mop. Our critters are always shedding. I used to use one of those things with the disposable sheets you attach to a head. I hated them because it seemed like such a waste to me. I found me an old fashion cotton dust mop but I didn’t like spraying stuff on it. I wanted one like they use on gym floors. So Jack figured out that we could get something made like the Car Duster to use on our floors. This is for all that dog hair we have. It is just part of life when you have critters are in your family. I have used the proto-type for months now and absolutely love it!

The chenille dusting head is for daily dust mopping. It does not need to be washed. I take the mop outside and shake it hard to get the worst of the dust bunnies out of it! This is such a great bargain. You have one sturdy handle and interchangeable heads. The microfiber mop heads are good used wet or dry. My favorite way is to use them is wet for weekly home blessing hour to wet mop our floors.

These are great tools that get the job done fast if you will put them in your hand and use them. Don’t keep procrastinating thinking that you are going to make a wrong decision. Indecision only hurts us. What ever you choose will be a good tool. We don’t have things in our FLY Shop that I don’t love and use.
