OK, this may indeed be the lamest post of all time… but dusting is something we have to do here a lot.
It is a dry climate, we live in the mountains, and we have a ‘mountain house’ which is to say it is not hermetically sealed. And we have a lot of equipment.
This means we end up dusting a lot [especially before auditions, and ESPECIALLY before auditions where a female of the species will be in attendance].
We have used these dusters, made for cars, for several years now.
The ones we get these days are pretty big - about 18 inches long [We have a lot of equipment, and furniture, and we are lazy - and this is kind of like having a double-wide vacuum cleaner - gets the job done twice as fast ].
They do have a special chemical that attracts dust - which is a lot better than just moving it around, like cotton dusters do, and a lot better than the spray EndDust-like products, which leave junk on the components which then seems to attract more dust than ever [BUT do NOT leave these just sitting on something, because the chemical will leach out of the duster and onto whatever it is sitting on - but if you do forget - hope is not lost: it does seem to evaporate over time].
Supposedly the duster works better after it is dirty…
But after awhile, it just seems WRONG to drag the dirty thing over nice equipment - like these speakers.
So we got the new duster ($9.95 at Target) and I thought you all might want to [or not ] see what we use before it gets put into use.
