In April, a reader posted the following question in an open thread on Lifehacker.com:
How do I handle dust in my apartment? I dust everything and 2 days later it’s back to the same level. Is there some magical something or other out there to help me control the dust? I live in the city on a 2nd story apartment. No one above and only carport below. Help!
There are some really terrific answers to the question in the remainder of the comments. If you struggle with dust, I definitely recommend checking out the conversation.
The piece of advice I most agree with is getting rid of carpets. I don’t know what it is about carpets, but they really seem to increase the amount of dust in a place.
Also, check out my article “Dusting in the 21st Century” on RealSimple.com for even more dusting tips.
