You can try swiping bathroom surfaces with dryer sheets -- anti-static, keeps dust from zooming there. if you can't afford a fancy-pants air filter, you can make your own very effectively and inexpensively with a 20" furnace HEPA air filter (Home Depot, etc.) fastened with duct tape or twist-ties to the back of an inexpensive 20" box fan. Put mats outside and inside entry doors. But remember that into each life some dust must fall and don't make yourself crazy about it! On a scale of 1 to 10, dust falls way to the bottom!
Dealing With Big City Grime
|9/10/12 2:46 PM|
I don't have a microwave or a dishwasher (there are some of us appliance-challenged humans still out here!) so I soak my Scotchbrite scrubber, stainless steel scrubber and dishcloth in a bowl with dish soap and bleach overnight once a week at least. When the kitchen towel I dry my hands on gets soiled, I wash the dishcloth with it and any dusting/scrubbing cloths in the washer. Periodically I put my cutting boards and wooden/bamboo spoons out in the sun to sanitize them (ultraviolet rays). I replace the Scotchbrite at the beginning of each month. And remember to wipe/disinfect doorknobs, toilet flush handles and faucet handles.
