Fact or Fiction: Feather duster helps to remove dust from furniture
Unless you are using a static duster, conventional feather dusters only serve to move the dust from one surface to another instead of picking up the dust. The dust merely gets transferred to other areas such as your floor or wall instead of being removed.
Using a vacuum cleaner (with suitable attachments for hard to reach areas) is more effective in removing dust from surfaces compared to a conventional feather duster. For surfaces such as ornaments or display items that are not suitable to be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner, using a damp microfibre cloth or static duster will help to remove the dust from these items instead of transferring the dust to other places in your home.
