Must Have Items for a Clean Home


Floor Duster

This simple handle and floor duster changed cleaning hardwood, tile and linoleum floors forever when it hit store shelves in 1999. The dry clothes attract dust and dirt more aggressively (it’s the static) than a traditional broom. Also, you can use the dry clothes to dust shelves, tables, the TV and more surfaces.
