Dusting? How often do you do it? What products do you use?

I hate dusting, I try to do it at least once a week, but I wont lie it goes longer than that from time to time. I always make a bucket on pine sol water and wipe everything down with a rag. Then I go back with the pledge(I like the orange kind) and then I do windex on the tv, all the pictures on the walls, mirrors etc.
All of this needs done right now, I will get to that and come back later and see what you ladies have to say. I really hope someone has a better way of going about it. I am all about taking the easy way

  • I do what you are saying you do every couple of weeks but inbetween I use a swiffer duster every now and then as I see it accumulating. I dust the coffee and end tables every few days w/windex on the glass tops and pledge on the wood tops because they really show the dust. Something is still always dusty but I live near ag fields so it's hard to keep up w/.... Try the swiffer duster inbetween your reg routine, they are great and much better than the feather duster I used to use.

  • I only use all natural, toxin free products. Melaleuca's sol-u-mel is great! It actually kills dust mites - I use it on our mattress pads when I change the sheets - I spray the kid's stuffed animals with it and I also spray my silk plants with it - all their products are wonderful. and

  • Dew1, I completely agree with you. I use all of Melaleuca's cleaning products including their laundry line. The tea tree oil that they use in all of their products kills all the bacteria on surfaces.
