Dust removal method
Dust on furniture is actually caused by static electricity. Static electricity will attract the dust, and over time the surrounding will become dusty. To make furniture less likely to accumulate dust, one simple tool, fabric softener is needed. The softener can provide a layer of lubricating protection to the object, which blocks static electricity, and reduce the speed of dust accumulation.
- Prepare electrostatic dust paper, rags, water and softener first.
- Before using the softener, thoroughly clean the surface of the furniture with electrostatic dust paper. If you wipe it with a damp cloth first, the surface dust will clump and stick to the object, and it will become dirtier over time.
- Add a small amount of softener to clean water, the ratio is about 1:40, too much softener will leave marks on the furniture.
- Dip the cloth with water and softener, twist it dry and wipe the furniture.

1. Microfiber Rag
There are some towels made of microfiber on the market, which are made by a three-dimensional weaving method, which is of mushroom shape if looked closely. Dust particles will be trapped on the towel, so it is very suitable for removing dust. Besides, it has a strong ability to absorb water and oily substances, which makes it popular among housewives.
2. Pure cotton gloves
Dust is light in weight and it often flies around and when cleaning. You can wear cotton gloves for cleaning because dust will adhere to the cotton fibres. So, you can wear cotton gloves to wipe delicate household items such as lamps, furnishings, glass, etc. The flying dust can be stuck by the gloves, which makes the cleaning process more convenient.
3. Coffee filter paper
Dust on the dark surfaces will be very conspicuous and some objects may need to be carefully cleaned, such as TV display screens. Coffee filter paper can be used as a dust removal tool. It is soft and has a dust-absorbing effect. It is very suitable for cleaning flat surfaces without leaving scratches.
4. Clothes dust bag
There was a Japanese test that proved one of the sources of household dust formation is from clothes fibres. When clothing fibres fall, dust will be formed. Therefore, in order to reduce dust, it is equally important to protect objects with clothing fibres, whether it is a quilt, bed covers, clothes, etc. If you don’t use them often, you can pack them in a dust-proof bag.
