Feather-style dusters aren’t just for French maids and Amelia Bedelia! And they’ve come a long way: Modern fibers trap dirt and dust instead of just moving them around, and models with extension poles and bendable heads make it easy to get into every nook, cranny and crevice of your home. So dust can run, but it can’t hide.

Specially coated fibers trap and lock lint, dirt and dander on everything from electronics to furniture to the inside of your car.

Technically you don’t need a handle for duster refills to work, but they’re much easier to maneuver with one. Check the packaging to make sure you have all the accessories you need.

This luxe model features a 180-degree hinge tip and a trio of separate heads.

It may seem crazy to invest in an expensive reusable duster when there are cheaper one-use options out there, but consider this: By creating less waste, you’ll be an instant environmental superstar, and over time, you may actually end up saving money.

Split-fiber technology gives the material an electrostatic charge that attracts pollen, hair, and other intruders

Reusable dusters should be cleaned on a regular basis to make sure you’re not redistributing all the dirt you removed. Just rinse with hot water and dish soap, then air-dry.
