  • After you clean them, try to maintain a weekly routine of cleaning them. This  will keep alot of dust from building up on it, and getting thick and making it harder to clean.

    Weekly you can use a dryer sheet to clean them.

  • I agree with virginiamama...after giving them a good cleaning, the only way to keep it an easy chore is to do it often! If I get behind on my dusting, I need to get out the rag and spray and move stuff around. After that I try to go at it weekly with a Swiffer duster. There's no buildup that way, and it take SECONDS instead of minutes (or even hours).
