So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Cleaning frenzy continues

Seldom do I follow the children around with a vaccuum cleaner to scoop up any crumbs that fall until we're having visitors. Army of Dad's father will be here sometime today and he hasn't been here in about a year and a half or so. This makes me a nervous wreck, fearing of being judged as a homemaker. Since I work at home, most people see me as someone who doesn't really work, so I want to keep a clean house for his visit. *sigh*

Anyone have a solution for dusting? And, what I mean is that when I dust my bookshelves, the dust just lands right back on the shelves. Do those Old English wipes work? Help. Pisses me off to dust and 10 seconds later, it barely looks different.

One more day till this Godforsaken cast is off.

    Tonie,

    Endust helps. Or if you can find one of those yellow dusting cloths (one brand name is One-Wipe) - the dust clings to them. If there's a dustcloth version of Swiffer, that might help too.

    I hate dusting too - stirs up my allergies.

    But I totally understand the pressure....

    My wife has allergies, so I dust. I have found that a genuine feather duster works best. When I think it's 'full', I shake it inside the shower, where the dust is attracted to the water. When I'm done, I just rinse down the shower. Also, we use the Fantom Fury vacuum, so there is NO dust in the carpet to be stirred up. Do not ever get the feather duster wet, either. It kills it.

    I will try both of these ideas. Thanks.
