    I already posted this in AVSForum, but I have to spread the good word. I bought some Swiffer Dusters today and just finished using them to dust my speakers and equipment rack, and these little things are phenomenal. I know it seems hard to get worked up about cleaning, but when you're talking about your pride and joy and all the money you've invested. They slide right under components to grab all that hard to reach dust, and they actually collect the dust - don't just move it around. Great for top of your components with vents as well. I used to use scott towels and Windex and it would take about 30 min., now it takes 5. I'm telling you all out there, invest in these. They are about $4 for a box of 5 and each one should be able to clean all of your equipment.

    [​IMG] I've also discovered these, and they're great. My wife found a coupon for it in one of the DVDs I bought her. I find myself dusting more often now, and all my stuff just looks so good.

    I've been using these for about 6 months, and you're right -- they're absolutely phenomenal. Probably the best new cleaning product on the market in years, which is an odd thing for any guy to say. But they really work.

    The Swiffer Duster is great. Perfect for people like me with fat hands and fingers.

    The Audio Duster by Billy Bags is also a great thing to use too. It's much pricier but it's re-useable, not throw away...

    Found the Swiffer Dusters at Target for approx. $4/box. I would imagine you could find them at Wal-Mart and your local grocery store as well.

    Thanks, I'll have to give them a try too. I end up having to dust as often as once a week.

    I also use the 3m microfiber cloths. Great for dusting AND cleaning glasses, with out the need for glass cleaner. If your lenses are really dirty, a little water is all I need.

    David: Yeah, there's no problem. The level of electrostatic charge is extremely low. Just enough to hold light dust. We're nowhere near the level of something like a shock you get in the winter...
