Q: "Are these made in China? I prefer to buy products either Made in USA or Made in Canada. Also are these washable? And are they sturdy enough for a cleaning service? Thanks. Sue."
Answer: These are made in Canada with Canadian wool. Our primary customers are large hotel and motel chains, cleaning and janitorial services and private companies who have their own cleaning and maintenance personnel. Individuals often purchase these dusters along with our Bona Kemi and Sh-Mop products if they do their own housecleaning.
The standard handle duster has a sturdy plastic handle that is 16 inches long, 26 inches with the 10 inch lambswool dusting head. We buy these in cartons of assorted colors as we do the lambswool duster with telescoping handle. Each has an end loop for hanging or you can thread a cord through for hanging if you choose.
The extended length, telescoping duster has the same 10 inch long lambswool duster head. The handle locks at the length you prefer. The handle extends to 42 inches from 32 inches.
Before using, spin the duster between your hands to open up the wool. Repeat after cleaning to shake out dust after use. When necessary, wash in warm, soapy water. When dry, spin duster handle to regain fullness. Lambswool attracts and retains dust: synthetics often do not.
Thanks for your question.
