If your allergies are acting up, chances are there’s dust hidden all over your house.

The video above demonstrates some of our favourite tricks for eliminating dust:

  • Use fabric softener or dryer sheets to wipe down surfaces—their anti-static qualities will keep dust from sticking

  • Wrap paper towels around tongs to clean tight spots like vents and blinds

  • Use a lint roller on your lamp shades or curtains

  • Blow hidden dust out of radiators using a hair dryer

In most cases, the dust ends up trapped in an easily disposable material—and you can see just how much dust you picked up. Achoo!
