Cleaner for dusting

My birds are kept in my bedroom during most of the day, I really need to dust badly, haven't in a long time cause I'm afraid of the fumes of like pledge or something, dry dusting is just a waste of time I think, so, anyone have any suggestions? what do you use to dust around the bird rooms? is anything safe? thanks <><

I would not use any thing in a spray can around my birds, try a damp cloth. Air cleaners help a lot. But the dust issue is not an easy one.

I use the unscented swiffer dusters in the whole house but not directly on anything associated with the birds and have no problems. There's no chemicals or anything on them, just microfiber cloth really It does a pretty good job, too. I use the swiffer sweeper on the floor, too, since the vacuum doesn't get all the birdy dust off the hard wood floors

Theirs a product called norwex, they have microfiber cloths that are antibacterial, all u need is water to clean. They are AMAZING, I have never used a product that got the dust better than these. They also have a window cloth to be used along side the microfiber for doing windows. All in all they are just fabulous, I dont know how I went so long without them, lol.

Look on the internet nanay, you should be able to find someone who sells it close to you. I really do swear by these products. They seem a little pricey but Im still using the same cloths I bought 2 years ago, so well worth the investment.

They have lots of natural products that are safe around birds. They even have a mop that you only need water to use. And it works amazing. My laminate floors sparkle, lol. It comes with a dry and wet options, just great. Good luck, hope you get your hands on some. You will be a forever fan. I think everyone who owns birds should have these products

Look at me singing norwex's praise, I really should start selling it, hahahahah

The Swiffer dusters do help....But I can't stand their commercials! I also just sweep up dust that I see with the sweeper attachments. At least as much as I can get.
