Damp dusting?

by Emma
(Scotland )

I clean my house twice a week and have tried damp dusting, as I've heard it's best for people with asthma, which I have, and a dust allergy.

But I find it just wets the dust and any hair lying around, making it stick even more and spreads it around. Does anyone have any tips?

Yes, Tara is right. Vaccum cleaner with HEPA filter will be good choice.
Thank you.

Damp dusting uses a damp cloth, not wet. The amount of water is minimal. Another option is the ENJO cloths, I have used these over the past 20 years and even when I try other methods I always go back to the ENJO. I am not a seller of this, but I do find them to be the best albeit expensive

Hi Emma,

While damp dusting sounds good in theory, the reality is dust/ dirt and water = a hard-to-remove mud.

I'd suggest using a HEPA vacuum with attachments you can use for dusting pretty much everywhere in your home. The benefit of the HEPA filter o a vacuum is that it traps and holds even minute dust and allergens, instead of sending them spiraling around the room as traditional dusting can.

Good luck!
