Here’s a tip for cleaning areas that are impossible to vacuum, such as under low furniture.

Make a dusting wand out of a yardstick covered with a cotton sock. Secure it with a rubber band. Liberally spray both sides of the sock with dusting spray.

The wand is perfect for cleaning under the sofa, which only has about a half-inch of clearance. And, when I’m done dusting, I can toss the sock in the wash and replace it with a clean one!
