My whole life, I have always wanted to live in a house with stairs, and now that I finally do I find it does not disappoint. The most satisfying thing about these stairs is the bannister, which has lots of tiny gaps where dust collects. The only possible solution to cleaning these is a feather duster. (If you know of other solutions, please keep them to yourself.) I mean: a feather duster! Is there anything more fun than cleaning with what is basically an ostrich butt on a stick?
Note that I do not ask if there is anything cleaner. I’m aware that all I’m really doing is moving the dust from its safe little stair bed out into the air and from there into my lungs. But in terms of sheer enjoyment, feather dusting is right at the top, at least when it comes to housecleaning.
Or so I thought…until today, when I realized that from now on I need to be doing all my cleaning in a tiara. I expect anyone who’s ever met me is nodding right now, going “Cleaning…costume…Kris…yep, that sounds right.” Actually I might need to make a whole Cleaning Princess outfit. But first I’m going to go see if there are other dust lairs that need to be ostrich-butted. Woot!
