How to Clean Dust Magnets

Many household objects generate a lot of static energy. This static energy turns the object into a dust magnet as they attract dust like bees are attracted to pollen. These dust particles affect the performance of your object e.g. dust particles on your desktop or a laptop will decrease its efficiency.

– A lamb’s wool duster
– A vacuum cleaner
– Microfiber cloths
– An ostrich-feather duster
– A natural bristle paintbrush
– 1 c. table salt
