I don’t know about you, but I hate dusting and I am willing to try just about anything to keep from having to dust every other day. So here is a little trick I heard from a friend and I have been doing it ever since: I use a dryer sheet to dust with! I have found it works well for shelves, windowsills and baseboards. 

The method I have found that works best is:

First, go over the area with a cloth designed to “catch” dust, not simply spread it around. I found my duster at the dollar store. It has a removable cloth that can be washed in the laundry.

Next, I spray a little water on a dryer sheet (just a little, you don’t want it dripping). Then, I simply wipe everything down with a dryer sheet.

Think about it. Dryer sheets repel static on clothes, right? It does a pretty good job on windowsills and baseboards too.

Here is a comparison of two windowsills in my house after TWO WEEKS without dusting. The first one is a picture before I started using dryer sheets in my weekly dusting routine, the other picture is after using dryer sheets. I had to wait two weeks, because there wasn’t even enough dust on the windowsill after the first week to warrant a picture. Take a look for yourself.

So what do you think? Are you going to try this?
