Cleaning With Compressed Air

Cleaning the house can be a tedious chore, especially after a long week at work and shuffling kids between school and extracurricular activities. Thankfully, robots are making the work of a housewife much easier, as you can schedule a Roomba when you want it to scurry about and clean the dust bunnies and crumbs from under the couch. If you don’t have several hundred dollars on hand, you might have to resort to the ever-dependable elbow grease and bottle of cleaner. If you need extra help with some hard to reach places, perhaps a can of compressed air will come in handy.

Six Cleaning Tips

The heavy-duty compressed air system used in a mechanic shop is overkill for household cleaning, but the small can that you might have stashed in your desk drawer is just enough. As if canned air wasn’t strange enough, the fact that you can whip it out and take your cleaning power to a whole new level is just plain amazing. Here are some things you can clean with a compressed air duster.

  1. You can blow all of the dust out of your mini blinds and lampshades.
  2. You can use compressed air to blow the crumbs out of the center console in your car and off the dashboard.
  3. You can use the air to blow out any hairs or particles that might be caught in your electric razor.
  4. If you have delicate china or keepsakes, you can use canned air to blow them clean without handling them often.
  5. You can keep the back of the television and computer monitors free from dust that will cause overheating and breakdown.
  6. You can blow the lint out of the filter area on the dryer.

Compressed air is almost like magic. One minute the dirt and dust is there, and the next minute it is gone.
