I own an Ionic Breeze air cleaner, well...it adds an extra oxygen particle to the dust which makes it heavier than air, so it falls to the ground creating visible dust on surfaces. I aint married, so I dont have a dedicated duster and I really dont care to go around the house dusting things with one of those feather dusters. Im thinking of rigging up a high pressure air hose and blasting the dust off. And setting up a fan in the window to carry the dust out of the house.

Wacha think?

How do you do it?

a good pleated central air filter, make sure dryer vent is sealed good, get rid of carpet.

Blowing dust will just relocate it. Use Microfiber towels. For floors use a swiffer.

Amen! on ridding your house of carpet! I put hardwood down, and got rid of all my carpet. I was taking Alegra, or some type allergy med everyday. now I don't have to take anything. Carpet is nasty shit without someone to keep it vacuumed regularly. Being single like myself, I say if you can afford to get rid of it, do it. I have very little dust in the house anymore. Also one of the filtrete 3m filters in your return will work wonders.

I have kids and pets. I am never totally dust free. All you can try to do is stay on top of it all, especially this time of year.

you do know that most dust is dead skin

Try this: "Honey, you'd better get your butt in gear and do some dusting! Bring me another beer first."

Call me and tell me how you make out.

No carpets - hardwood bedrooms, tile bathrooms, marble common areas.

No drapes - celllular blinds.

No cloth furniture - leather.

Excellent advice! Also:

Get rid of cats.

Get rid of clutter, in particular newspapers.

Make sure you have good weather stripping.

Do not make your bed. Making the bed traps moisture and encourages dust mites.

Wash your sheets on hot at least once a week.

Take your shoes off at the door. Do not wear shoes in the house.

Keep the pathways to your house clean. Don't track in crap.

Pay to have your HVAC ducts internally sealed. Increases the efficiancy a lot and eliminates all the dust in your home if you change your filter often enough. It costs a good chunk of change but it does pay for itself.

That doesn't make any sense. It is supposed to be trapping the dust particles.

I like dust. It is how I tell what has moved recently.

From what I've read the ionic breeze is a piece of crap, they don't work any better than a dirt cheap air purifier from wally world.

I had a friend who had a little framed sign in her house:

"Write in my dust if you must...
But for the love of God, PLEASE DON'T DATE IT!"

If it were up to me I'd burn down the house and rebuild. Thankfully, I don't do the dusting.
