Dusting: get it right with these tips

Ordinary house dust is made up of various tiny, tiny particles – such as dander and hair, lint and fabric or plant fibers, or even house dust mites and their droppings. For this reason, especially allergy sufferers need to dust at regular intervals. But which tools actually work best and can the (unfortunately unavoidable) dust infestation be reduced somehow??
