Default Dust...my worst enemy...

Okay, I'm sure all of you have experienced this before, but dust...why? why? why? Well, in my case, I live in an apartment and my room faces the street. So, I'm guessing it's the particles and ash from the cars that constantly pass by that cause me to have to keep dusting over and over and over again. I just recently rearranged my room and added a new desk. This way, I was able to clean all the crap that has been collecting over the years and now that it is nice and clean, already there is a collection of dust that has been added where I had just cleaned. To be honest, I'm surprised that my PlayStation 3 is still operating because who knows how much dust has collected over the two years I've had it, let alone it not clogging due to the dust. I envy those of you who don't have dust problems...

A real pain in the ***. But alas there's nothing you can do except keep dusting regularly.

Exactly! And always know that dust has to go somewhere...so I suggest using a vacuum in areas that are reachable!

Most house dust is actually discarded skin cells.......because our skin is constantly regenerating and we actually have 'new' skin like every 7 days or something like that......so you're probably just cleaning up after yourself!

Grime coming in off the streets is an added factor, but dust itself is often just.....US!!!
