To remove dust and dirt buildup from woodwork and leave it looking shiny, wipe down using a mix of 1 part lemon oil to 1 part vinegar.

Run removable glass pieces, such as domes through the dishwasher. Run them through the drying cycle too, to reduce spotting.

Instead of taking them down, just shake them out to remove loose dust. Then vacuum from top to bottom using the upholstery attachment or pop curtains in the dryer along with a damp rag. It will knock off all the dust and leave them nice and clean. ( Be careful about dry cleaning)

You can keep dust bunnies at bay by cutting up an old fleece scarf or jacket, or pick up half a yard at the fabric store. The fabric attracts and holds dust, and can be laundered and used again.

Stir 3 oz rubbing alcohol with 30 drops of rose, lavender or any essential oil, you like then add 1 1/2 cups of distilled water. Spritz away on sheets and more.

Mix 3/4 Cup of Olive Oil, 1/4 Cup White Vinegar and 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice. Squirt on a cloth and wipe thoroughly. (Store in the refrigerator for future use.)
