    I have found that using various sizes of paint brush with a lurking nearby hoover nozzle is quite good, brushing the dust towards the sucking.

    You guys obviously have very unhelpful cats, mine is a dab hand with a duster.

    I use a Pledge Fluffy duster, works very well. It holds the dust and cat hair instead of spreading it around and when it's clogged up just pull it off the wand and throw it away.

    ^ that's what I use to dust my kit. It works well.

    Also as my amp has big vents, when not in use, I cover it with a bit of safety glass on felt pads to keep the dust and cat hair out.

    Its a good thread topic because dust is the bane of everyone who has racks of hi fi eqiupment and music collections.

    I was thinking the other day just how much of a pain it is keeping vinyl and other things dust free.

    I dont know if there are affordable filters which work but it would probably be as expensive as kitting out a clean room environment.

    Dust is one of the strongest arguments for minimalism and digital copies of music. All I know is that I have to empty my racks once in a while to give all the equipment and shelves a proper clean. It gets through my amplifier grills and into every nook and cranny

    I have camera blower brushes for my hi fi and models. I keep some things in glass display cabinets. I have a swiffer pole(only for hard floors) and micro fibre cloths but the dust just keeps coming.

    I like to think I run a clean home free of dead skin . Its even worse when you see the tiny white dust mites making a move across a display panel (under a bright light when dusting carefully) How are they finding my dead skin on there It reduces the cosmetic appearance of perspex which has to be cleaned very carefully. I like to see glass used as much as possible for displays.

    Dust is nothing new ...birth, dust, taxes, and death is how I see it .....ashes to ashes dust to dust

    I thought it was 'funk to funky'?

    When did that change?

    This lady was trying a rather extreme cure for dead skin dust.
    I'd imagine it was quite effective.

    Ah, but look at this Amazon user review of the Pledge -- "Love this duster. Easy to put together and use. I have used cheap versions of this product from Aldi and Lidl's, but the Pledge version is much better picking up the dust "
