Dust can settle on any surface, making cleaning a never-ending and almost impossible task.

Luckily, Apartment Therapy’s cleaning pros have some brilliant tips for when you need to dust and really can’t be bothered.

Apply wax to devices

Sometimes dusting is unavoidable, but if you want to extend the time in between, applying wax to your devices can help.

This will also make cleaning the same spots much faster in the future.

Use a dryer sheet on baseboards

The simple fact is that dryer sheets can hold a lot more dust than a regular sheet.

Running one along the edges of dusty baseboards will keep them looking fresh much faster than other methods.

Skip making your bed

No really – your sheets can air out better if your bed is left unmade.

This means that dust mites cannot settle in your cozy blankets.

Use a fluffy sock

Can’t find your dust mop? Or no more dryer sheets?

A fluffy chenille sock will do just as well.

Of course, you’ll have to toss it in the washing machine when you’re done with it, but it’s a great lazy alternative when you’re in a pinch and don’t want to run to the store.

Use a pillowcase

Pillowcases are great for dusting larger areas like fan blades.

Simply slide each blade into the pillowcase and slowly peel off the pillowcase.

Most of the dust comes off and anything that falls is caught in the pillowcase.

Use a magic eraser

Your tech can get pretty dusty, so keeping it clean is important to ensure it’s working properly.

Using a magic eraser to remove dust from keyboards can make the task much easier.

The pros say, “Shrinking the clunky task tackler makes it easier to maneuver through those little crevices in your keyboard that collect dust.”

Use a lint roller

Running a lint roller over fabric lampshades, curtains and headboards is a quick and easy way to remove dust from the area with little effort.

It will also save you some money on an upholstery brush, especially if you have fluffy pets running around.
