I've heard you're supposed to wet dust, which actually picks up the dust and not like "Feather dust" which spreads it around.
On the few occaisions I've dusted it's been with Pledge which my mother swears by. But I'm thinking there might be a better way since it does smell like solvent!
I searched the archives and found one little post about olive oil, but it wasn't that encouraging.
Also - the top of my real wood dresser is a very shiny substance - should I just use water on it? The side of the dresser and the bed are more wood like and I think would take an oil. The only reason I'm afraid of the water in the dresser is b/c it already has some ruined parts from make-up and cleansers.
And - what do you like best for the rag? Polar fleece? Would a bird's eye weave diaper work? We only used fitteds. Old t-shirts?

I use a damp microfibre cloth just with water. That's all you need for any surface you're dusting.
If it's good enough for Martha...
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
