Is your house dusty? With all the wind and dust storms (we are located in Arizona) that we have had this summer it has been challenging keeping up with all the dust and the dust bunnies that they create. These storms make pollen, dust, and other allergens and they spread quickly with the wind storms.
What are dust bunnies anyway and when do they rear their ugly heads most often? Dust bunnies are essentially just collections of dust particles, hair (pet or human), and other fibers in your home. The more dusty and hairy your home is the more dust bunnies you will see. Also, your home’s flooring type plays a part in it as well as hard floors are more susceptible to dust bunnies. Softer flooring like carpet allows the dust to settle in and not be as easily stirred up. So, while you may not see the dust bunnies as much with carpet it doesn’t mean your home is cleaner. It probably just means you need to vacuum the carpet.
Easy Ways to Kill Dust Bunnies:
A tip that we suggest to keep up with the dust bunnies and to eliminate the dust in your home is of course dusting. DUH! Routine dusting decreases the chances of allergies acting up while indoors and doesn’t look as embarrassing when company comes over. Also just staying on top of the dust that settles on your stuff will keep the dust bunnies in the corners and on the floors less likely to appear.
I love the Swiffer Duster! It works so well; and the model that extends is so handy for dusting ceiling fans, skinny spaces, and unreachable spots, especially if you are a shorty.
First, go through your rooms at eye level and check out all the main dust collectors in your home and knock those down with a Swiffer or wiping with a slightly damp micro-fiber cloth. You can use water or a dusting polish if you choose. You don’t need much.
More than likely the dust bunnies are still around on the floor after your initial dusting. Watch out as they hop away quickly when you start trying to corral them. Catch the dust bunnies up with a vacuum cleaner or floor duster depending on your liking and floor type.
