It is important to dust your home frequently in order to limit the presence of dust which can contain among other things, biological substances such as mites, mould, animal dander, sloughed-off skin cells, hair, etc. Also present can be chemicals that off gas from various appliances and products and even microscopic specks of plastic.

To remove dust, it is preferable to use microfibre cloths that you can moisten (with water or white vinegar). In addition to being healthy and durable, they will be effective in eliminating dust without releasing it into the air. Rinse the cloths often while dusting.

You can also use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust from curtains, upholstered furniture and mattresses.
