Here are some dusting tips as recommended by our ThriftyFun community. If you have any advice on dusting, post them here.
When white socks are starting to wear out and they are ready to toss out, DON'T. Save them for dusting and polishing furniture. Slip one over your hand and ole, a freebie dust cloth. If you prefer, you can coat them with a light spray of PLEDGE (or whatever other brand you prefer).
I've always had a hard time cleaning vinyl siding and the bricks on the exterior of my home, you know, cobwebs and dust!
I found the nifty duster on Ebay that is used like a whip and let me literally beat the dust into submission. Even helped to vent my frustrations.
They had a website as well, http://www.dusteroo.com - a little pricey but it worked like a charm.
Great forum, thanks for providing the great tips for me and my family!
I swear by this. Attach a rag sprayed with your favorite dusting spray to a broom secure with a rubber band or old hose and give your ceiling a quick dusting. it does wonders for the air quality.
You probably throw out dryer sheets after the laundry is done, right? They make terrific dusters! I keep them in a stack and whenever I need to quickly clean something, they come in so handy, even better than a duster.

How about using a ostrich feather duster. It holds the dust in, has a long handle, and are so much fun to use. It does not have to be a chore to dust, and using this duster, it surely is a breeze. When they get too much dust in them, wash them with baby shampoo and water and good as new. I have two or three at home and one at work for my desk and other.
Tip came from www.flylady.net
Dust AFTER you have vacuumed (or again after you have vaccumed :-)) to keep your furniture dust free.
Change your air filter as often as recommended.
Clean your ceiling fans quarterly or more often.
I find these really help in keeping the dust down
Because I have allergies, I prefer to dust using Endust, some spray furniture polish - or those lovely Swiffer cloths. They are great for leaving no residue and can be folded so that you use all the available area.
