Dusting helps improve indoor air quality and gives all surfaces a clean and fresh look. Dusting gloves help clean up dust particles without the need for harsh chemicals that can cause problems in those with breathing difficulties. Dusting mitts are oversized gloves made from a variety of materials that have the ability to trap dirt, dust, mites, allergens, and even pet dander. These mitts save time and can be used over and over as needed. Staples carries a wide selection of dusters, dust pans, and other cleaning supplies.

Using Dusting Gloves for Daily Cleaning
Dusting gloves fit over the whole hand to keep skin away from contact with germs while cleaning. The dusting fibers have a thick pile, which allows you to get into crevices and corners for a deep clean. Microfiber gloves are soft and gentle, which allows you to use them on a variety of surfaces without scratching. They do not require the use of sprays, so you can use them anywhere.

Most gloves are made of machine-washable fabric, which makes them reusable and easy to clean. They are lint-free to prevent the spread of dust, and are odor-free.

Choosing the Right Gloves for the Job
There are several different types of dusting gloves to consider. Mitts, or gloves without fingers, let you clean a greater surface area at one time. They are usually sold in packs of one, which frees up your other hand for additional tasks. Gloves are sold in packs of two, so you can equip both hands with dusting power. Both have top-ribbed edging to prevent dirt from falling into the gloves, which keeps hands cleaner.

Some dust mops fit on the end of poles, which allows you to reach high up on the top of ceiling fans or along the top edge of a cabinet or bookshelf. Gloves work well when cleaning intricate scroll work on furniture because you can work your way down into the grooves, while a mitt works well on floors, table tops, and other large areas that require large sweeping movements.

What Is the Easiest Way to Clean Blinds?
The easiest way to clean blinds is to put on a pair of dusting gloves and grip the individual slats. Swipe your hand across to remove all dust. Continue along the entire length of the blinds.

How Often Should You Dust Your Room?
To keep furniture spotless and free from any type of dirt and dander, it's best to dust at least once a week. For homes without pets or if you prefer to keep windows closed and use the central heating and air year-round, you probably need to only dust once a month. Tackle high ceilings, corners, and along the tops of furniture at least every three to six months to help cut down on allergens.

When Should You Wash Dusting Mitts?
For light jobs, it's possible to hit your dusting gloves outside against a deck rail or similar to remove any excessive dust. After heavy cleaning, it's a good idea to throw your gloves in the washing machine to remove germs and to avoid odors and dirt build-up.
