When I arrived from my morning walk yesterday, I walked in my house and noticed a layer of dust on a tabletop illuminated by the sun. Naturally I gave it a quick swipe with the sleeve of my fleece, only to discover the dust got sucked into the fibers of my sweatshirt. I shook it forcibly. I tried to hand pick the dust particles out of my sweatshirt. I then threw it in the wash, defeated. Well, almost defeated.
Before the day was out, I noticed dust in higher, harder to reach places. Oh my! A dusting wand was in order.
I had more leftover fleece that I was anxious to put to good use, but what to do for a rod/wand? Well, in case you didn’t know, I’m an archer and I probably have a dozen broken arrows in my archery range. And honestly, I don’t know why I have not thrown them in the recycling bin yet. But, now I know. They were destined to be dusters.
If you don’t have old arrows laying around, you could use a dowel or curtain rod.
One thing about me, I always use what I already have on hand. In this case it’s John Deere fleece. I must say, this would look so cute in brighter fleece – maybe even cute enough for a gift idea. For a little girl, I’d totally make one of these in Hello Kitty fleece. Wow, cleaning has just gotten fashionable!
So, if you avoid dusting like I do, make one of these and it’ll be a lot more satisfying.
