My house gets so dusty and I cannot work out why as I have front windows closed, though i do keep the front door open often.
When I lived on a property and there was a lot of sand and bush around, I thought the dust was from that and from having large animals run and kick up dust, however I think it is actually worse here in the city.
I dust one day, and the next day there is a thick layer of dust again. I have all but given up dusting every week and now only do it if I am expecting a visitor!
Sometimes it is so thick, I can write my initials in it.
I think it all depends ...if you use a damp duster.
I have found that dry-dusting can and will leave it feeling....still dusty.
My mother in law always used a dry duster, and after a few years, you could see the build up of dust on one pce of furniture.
Dust does stick, so maybe using those special dust wipes from the supermarket...only on hard surfaces, will do the trick.
I'm not really into the spray on polish, it leaves build up after long time usage.
That's my take anyway.....Polish once in a blue moon, and it all looks great.
Not a lot I don't think, I don't often dust. Ha ha it just occurred to me that perhaps it is because I now have mac degeneration and my eyesight is fading slowly so...I live in blissful ignorance of dust AND WRINKLES which is lovely!
I don't find that the house gets overly dusty. I dust weekly and that helps me to keep on top of all the dust. If I left the dusting for weeks and weeks, it would get dusty. Regular dusting is the answer to prevent build up.
