3 Ways to Save Time Dusting

We all know that keeping your house clean and looking good is a never-ending process. It takes work! However, that doesn’t mean cleaning needs to take up hours of your time. If you live in a home that has dust, and most of us do, here are three tips to save time dusting and increase your home cleaning efficiency:

1. Dust before vacuuming. As you dust, particles of dirt and dust fall to the floor. Dusting before you vacuum saves you from cleaning the same floor twice.

2. Move from the top down. Similarly, when dusting a room try to start at the top and work your way to the bottom. Try to make gravity your friend rather than your enemy.

3. Microfiber for the win! Ditch the feather duster and get with the times by using a damp microfiber cloth. It’s important to not get your cloth too wet, as you want it to be damp enough to pick up dust without leaving moisture streaks behind on surfaces. This technique will ensure that your home’s surfaces and furniture are cleaned in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner!
