Clear the Dust

Achoo!! Bless you!!

Many people if not being allergic to dust are still somehow affected by dust...and those same people probably hate dusting! Here are some ways to reduce the dust without actually dusting.
  1. Keep a thick outdoor mat in front of every door that is used to enter your home, this will trap debris and keep them from entering your home.

  2. Minimize too many knick-knacks that collect dust and that you probably won't be picking up constantly to remove the dust from.

  3. Use fan powered air purifiers to help remove the dust before it actually settles.

  4. Keep the humidity level in your home between 40-50% to reduce static.

  5. Make sure to change your vent filters regularly.

  6. If you have allergies, make sure to get allergen free pillow and mattress covers.

  7. Also for those with allergies, use a filter for your mouth/nose when cleaning.

  8. Blinds that are hard (wood, plastic, etc.) are easier to clean than cloth drapes and blinds.

  9. Use microfiber cloths rather than using aerosol cans (yes, even on your wood furniture).

  10. There are also special anti-static cloths made for your computers, TVs, phones and even picture frames.

  11. Bed sheets should be washed weekly in hot water to kill the bacteria found in dust. Comforters can be washed monthly.

  12. House plants also get dust on them, and the best way to clean them is to spray their leaves with water and again you can wipe them off with microfiber cloths.
Who knew microfiber could do so much! Here's hoping that these tips lead to a happier, less sneezing you!
