It Really Works!
The Dust It Off Dust Mitt really works! It does an ahhhh-mazing job of collecting dust and hair. The fuzzy, polyester yarn is like a literal dust and hair magnet.
If you’ve ever worked with the Pipsqueak or similar yarn, you know what I’m talking about! This dust mitt will work for you!
Make a bunch of dust mitts, in a bunch of colours to give as gifts, or help bulk up your fair stock; I mean everyone needs a good duster, right?!
And what better reason to procrastinate your own dusting than by making new dust mitts?!
