Dusting and Furniture Care Essentials - Clean Mama

Dusting and furniture care may or not be on your radar, but if you have furniture and woodwork in your home, you can benefit from putting together a bucket or basket with some products and tools that you will need at some point. I enjoy taking good care of furniture and woodwork – it makes your home look better and most definitely will make your furniture last longer.

I keep my furniture and dusting caddy (bucket) in my cleaning closet – seen here on the far right side of the middle shelf. It’s easily accessible and holds just about everything I ever need for doing a little furniture polishing and maintenance.

I keep my weekly dusting essentials in the bucket – I like having everything at the ready for Tuesday (Tuesday is dusting day) and I’ve found that keeping it all in one place is convenient and keeps me from wasting time looking for supplies and tools.

 Weekly Dusting Essentials - Clean Mama

For weekly dusting, I simply use a microfiber duster and quickly move through the house dusting each and every surface. When surfaces need a little more cleaning and polishing (every other week or so), I use my Clean Mama Home Utility microfiber cloth with a dusting and cleaning spray. (My 2 favorites are Murchison-Hume Everyday Furniture and Upholstery Cleaner and Better Life Naturally Dust Defying Wood Polish). You can also see my weekly dusting must-haves on my Around the House page on the blog – I detail some favorites for cleaning by day of the week and provide links for products as well.

Maintenance Dusting Essentials - Clean Mama

These products are great for polishing furniture, covering up scratches, and making worn wood shine. I keep them in the caddy so I can use them as necessary – if I’m dusting and see a scratch, I’ll correct it on the spot in lieu of waiting for another time.
