This blog post will cover all the steps for properly cleaning a synthetic feather duster and how often you should be doing this process to keep your house looking its best! 

Previously, we posted the best extendable duster for high ceilings on the market and some ways to use your feather duster, but now it’s time to talk about cleaning it.

Use the following steps to clean your synthetic feather duster properly:

1. Remove dust and debris from the duster by shaking it outside or over a trashcan to rid it of excess dirt, lint, dust, and hair.

2. Use a vacuum with an attachment to get in between the gaps of the duster by holding it at an angle to shake off any dust.

3. Fill a bucket with soapy water and place your duster inside the solution for 5 minutes, swirling it around to make sure it’s completely covered.

4. Remove your duster from the bucket and rinse it thoroughly with water to remove all soap residue.

5. Use a handheld hair dryer to completely dry the duster to avoid water spots on surfaces around your home.

6. Hang your feather duster on a hook or stand to allow it to dry completely before use.

By following these steps, you will have a very clean duster that will stay clean longer, reduce the risk of dusting your furniture with debris that could potentially damage it, and most importantly, keep you and your family happy.

There are occasions when you can’t clean your feather duster immediately, so it is vital to know the best way to store it in order to prevent dust from settling on the duster and causing a buildup.

The next time your feather duster is not in use, we recommend you try the following:

Feather Duster Storing

1. Store your feather duster in a breathable storage bag or covered with plastic wrap to keep it clean and protected.

2. Keep your duster in a place where the air is still, like the corner of an empty closet or a rarely used room.

Your feather duster will stay in excellent condition, and be ready for future dusting jobs around your home by following these steps.
