I try to avoid both. But when I dust, I hoover afterwards. Although I hoover way more than I dust. If that makes any sense.

If I'm going to do both, then dust first. However I am rarely that organised grin.

And I don't dust as such, I wipe with a damp cloth as dh has asthma.

I dust first then hoover although they say that you should hoover and then dust. Apparently the hoover gives off loads of dust.

Dust first

I very rarely dust. My kitchen and bathroom are clean for hygiene reasons but just can't see the point of dusting other than cosmetic reasons - and I know we a lucky that we have no allergy probs either.

When I do dust I actually dust with hte upholstry brush of my vacuum first so most of it gets sucked up my hover and not spread around room grin

I have to dust first so that all the bits and pieces of crap and fluff go on the floor and then i hoover it all up.

Bewilderbeast Sun 02-Sep-07 21:17:54

dust first, it's totally pointless hoovering and then knocking dust back over the floor

puffylovett Sun 02-Sep-07 21:25:58

although actually, if there's dead flies on the windowsill and cat hair on the fireplace, i use a hoover attachment to hoover them up and then dust with a wet cloth after.

am v sad

Excellent the concensus seems to be dust first, but only if absolutely necessary - I can go with that!
