Clean House: A Dusting Trick

When dusting, start at the top of the room

Q: As I move around the room dusting, I feel like I undo my earlier work with, you guessed it, more dust. How can I avoid that?

A: You’d better believe that pro cleaners have a game plan for how they move through the house. A dusting strategy, if you will.

Move around each room in a circle. Hit the highest points first in the room you are going to tackle then work your way down, moving in a circle. That way you won’t end up mucking up a clean space after you’ve already dusted it. It’s deceptively simple… and now you know the secret.
