Dusty Abode

Those magic dusters don’t work. You know the kind, where the ads say that they ‘attract dirt, not just spread it around’. Well, I don’t think they trialled those dusters in an inner city Melbourne apartment, where a thick layer of grey dust, not brown like the dirt on the ground, adheres to every surface as if magnetically attracted. The dust doesn’t even jump when I slam the door on my way to full-time work collecting artefacts, but the least the companies could do is produce something that actually does what it’s supposed to. One day I’ll hire a big, powered air blower to dislodge it, or I could ‘borrow’ one of the humans’ dusters, though it might not fit inside the wall where I live. But, apparently it actually collects dust, not just sweep it away.
