So Sunday as many of you know is my usual cleaning day. Today, for some reason I noticed that my horizontal blinds were super dusty. I don't think I have ever noticed before, nor have I ever dusted them, so I decide I should do this.

Now here is lies the problem. I am ALLERGIC to dust. This means that having dust on things may or may not make me sick, but that also removing dust may make me sick.
Now by sick I don't mean deathly ill, but as I sit here after just dusting the one set of horizontal blinds (and not doing a very through job at it), my head is throbing, my nose is ichy and runny and I am not happy.

I recall when I first had my allergy test done in college and I was told I was allergic to dust and mold, I recall the doctor saying that I really should avoid dusting. Well since I don't think insurance covers housecleaning, and since I didn't marry a man who likes to clean ( I guess I should have ranked that higher on my list of pros and cons) , I am stuck dusting.

I think prehaps I need to invest in the swiffer duster or something better then papertowels, but I don't think that would solve the problem , just make it less tedious.

Anyway I need to finish my next blog entry so i can clean the bathroom and kitchen and living room and bedroom....oh what fun.

I sympathize because I am too sneezy at the thought of dust. It does not help that our atttic is full of it-anytime that I go up to look for something that I have to take a pill.

ps.. the swifter duster does not help-I tried it.

I think the hubby should at least do this ONE chore. It is your health after all.

I agree with kikis' sister that the swiffer duster thing does not help but the actual swiffer cloths, or the pledge mitts, help me, a fellow sufferer, a great deal.
