With all the refinishing projects I’ve been up to, my trusty feather duster has been in perpetual use.
Contrary to modern opinion, the feather duster doesn’t just move the dust around; something in the structure of the feathers collects the dust. My little girls are very fond of dusting everything they can reach and then shaking the thing outside. With wood stoves going all winter, there are many occasions for it. I used to love the silent feather duster for when I needed to clean during a baby’s naptime! I bought it a decade ago when I was beginning to mend my chaotic ways, and began to work with routines. It’s as good as it ever was, easily outliving the vacuum cleaners. Good old fashioned cleaning, and little bit glamourous, too.
