Feather dusters can either be real or synthetic. If you have a feather duster, you know it can be helpful when completing your normal cleaning routine. The feather duster is used for removing dust and other debris from various items. The idea is that the dust and debris will stick to the feathers as they are lifted from the surface. This means that your feather duster can get quite filthy. Luckily, there is a way to safely clean it yourself without ruining the feathers.
