The future of dusting?

Has the humble yellow duster had its day?

Manufacturers of advanced professional non woven cleaning wipes, would say that the future of the original yellow duster is in doubt and we tend to agree.

Chicopee claim that ‘no amount of dust can escape the innovative Dusty® wipe‘ but to be fair, they haven’t seen my office.

Should these replace your dusters? Is it time to move with technology?

How are they different to a normal duster?

Well, Dusty® wipes are specially designed with a pressure-sensitive tackifier (a what?), a gluey substance on the wipe that traps dust effectively without leaving residue on surfaces or on your hands (perhaps saving money on all that polish?).

The wipe also features a unique open structure that captures the dust in the wipe and keeps it there (in the same way as the Lavette Super apertures capture dirt and debris).

The result is a lightweight wipe that offers absolute dust pick-up with ease of use. Dusty® is perfect for dusting furniture, computers, desks, bathrooms and electronic equipment, leaving a perfect dust free surface, every time.

Are they expensive?

Each cloth is 43x37cm which is much bigger than the dusters you’ll be using now. They come in a pack of 25 so ensure that when you compare prices that you take into account that there are usually 10 per pack of traditional yellow dusters.

Based on what we sell our traditional dusters for, these are about the same price pro rata, if not a bit better.

Here are the benefits once again, in a nutshell;

    • Pressure-sensitive tackifier – dust sticks to the material
    • Open structure – helps trap more dust
    • No residue – leaves desks and hard surfaces dry and not tacky
    • Low linting – none of that excess yellow fluff 
    • Silicone free – tick in the environmental box
    • User friendly – makes cleaning easier
