Spring Cleaning Guide: How to Dust

You know you've been there: Just when you think your house is clean, a beam of sunlight comes across the living room, highlighting all those dust particles dancing in the air, just waiting to settle on every available surface.
 
Even the tidiest homes collect dust: tiny but solid particles from the surrounding environment, like hair, dirt, dead skin, decomposing insect carcasses, and other nasties. One of the big contributors to household dust is the dust mite, which feeds on organic debris such as dead skin cells and decomposing insects. Dust mites and their excrement are highly allergenic. Read more about dust mites (if you dare!) the Ohio State University Net Wellness site.
