I was hesitant about a feather duster - my mom had always said they just scatter dust about. But, after reading that a Buddhist monk considered one a necessary cleaning tool, I decided to try one. My personal experience has been more like the Monk's! I have an old home with many hand blown art glass light shades. The feather duster is perfect for them! It holds the dust (due to the oils on the feathers, I presume) and is so gentle. I use the feather duster on my regular light bulbs and shades,as well as the television, picture frames and glass,knick-nacks and baskets.. When I see that dust has accumulated on the duster, I take it outside and shake the dust free. So far, it has come clean every time and with very little effort. The loop through the handle is convenient for hanging - I keep mine on a peg along the wall in my cleaning closet. I definitely recommend it, and plan on getting a second one to keep upstairs.
This is the best feather duster I have ever used! Picks up dust without spreading it around. So very well made, this duster will last a very long time.
