    24 Things That'll Help You Get Rid Of Dust In Your Home

    The more time we spend at home, the more dust we are creating. That's science.

    1. A robotic vacuum that'll constantly work to keep dust and dirt off the floor, including frustrating places like under the table and beneath furniture.

    2. An animal print doormat to trap dirt that would otherwise track into your home. Your parents made you take your shoes off as a kid for a reason, turns out.

    3. A microfiber dusting glove, because microfiber is the very best material to use when picking up pesky dust particles, and you're gonna see why when you use this! Whoever thought to turn a cleaning cloth into a glove is a true genius.

    4. A covered litter box for preventing kicked-up litter particles from ending up on every surface of your cat's "bathroom." Cat parents know — kitty litter is nature's greatest escape artist.

    Covered litter box made of thick plastic with woven pattern, closed doggy door, and handle for carrying. It has a litter catcher step in front of the doggy door.

    5. A cordless air duster you can use to blast away built-on dust between tight crevices and corners.

    6. A dry brush set because, and I hate to even bring this up, a quick Google search'll let ya know that 80% of dust is (ugh) dead skin cells. Start an exfoliating routine and let that nasty stuff go straight down the drain instead.

    7. A pack of three clear storage bags for keeping the clothes you don't wear all that often (or your seasonal stuff) in an easy-to-spot place that dust mites won't be able to break into.

    8. A Dyson hot and cool purifying fan you can grab to filter the air while keeping your room the *perfect* temperature. I own this and I HAVE TO SAY THIS...I am a big ~fan~.

    My Dyson in my living room. It is oval shaped with a small footprint and plugged into the wall.

    9. A microfiber ceiling fan duster with a clever design specifically for ceiling fans. If you've never dusted the top of your ceiling fan...you're in for a grim surprise. This is here to keep that neglected chore from becoming a nightmare.

    10. A detailing cleaning putty that'll pick up the dust in every nook and cranny of your car (or keyboard). This stuff is so fun you may finally understand why kids these days are so suspiciously into slime.

    11. A microfiber spin mop because going over your floors with a mop (even just with water) is gonna remove that frustrating, thin layer of dust that drops off ya body daily.

    12. A four-pack of purifying plants — houseplants can reduce dust in the home by up to 20% (no joke!). So you can totally justify bringing yet another plant pack into your apartment. It's for cleanliness!

    Four mid-sized plants on a table. Each with different leaves.

    13. An aloe vera and oatmeal dander-reducing spray for keeping your pet's coat soft, shiny, and free of flakes. Sure, your cat thinks he's doing a mighty fine job on his own, but his tongue can't exactly condition dry skin — this will clear that up (and prevent pet dander from building up on your surfaces) lickety-split!

    14. A rug beater — you'll be shocked (and likely disgusted) when you take your regularly vacuumed rugs out with this terrific tool. It's true, vacuums have no chance against deep-set dust.

    15. An air purifier – it's gonna clear up the air in your home so well that going outside to get "fresh air" will seem like an oxymoron.

    16. A custom-made shoe rack, because keeping your shoes on is ALWAYS going to cause more dust and dirt. My family was a strictly shoes ON household, and my childhood mopping skills reflect that. You can go ahead and skip those extra chores, just use this lovely shoe rack instead!

    17. A water-based alkaline wood cleaner to wipe away the caked-on dust that lives on surfaces our oily hands touch often. Turns out your hands were always filthy and your railings really felt it.

    18. And an organic cleaning concentrate for anyone who wants a good dusting (using something wet helps) and a good, natural refresh while they're at it.

    19. A lint roller pole you can use on the daily if you see pesky dust particles in hard-to-reach places.

    The lint roller being used in four different ways. Once on the sofa, one under the sofa on the hardwood floor, on the floor with the short handle, and again with the long handle.

    20. A microfiber dust brush that'll spruce up your window shades so well you just might notice you actually did have a view through those dust bunnies.

    21. A roll of machine-washable reusable bamboo towels sure to be great for your place and *our* place...Mother Nature will totally thank you.

    22. A mounted purifier with six different purifying and deodorizing settings. This surprisingly sleek device is gonna trap airborne bacteria, mold spores, and other particles in the air.

    23. A handheld vacuum that'll *finally* make vacuuming curtains and upholstery a simple situation. Your upright vacuum could never.

    24. A cool mist humidifier to keep static (that loooves getting dust to cling to surfaces) out of your room. Plus, having moisture in the air is great for plants *and* your respiratory system. Win, win, WIN!
