Every so often at the airport I'd see the cleaning people with a tennis ball on the end of a broomstick and watch them as they used the end of a tennis ball to remove shoe scuffmarks from the floors of the long corridors of the airport without having to bend over. When the vestibule and hall area of our church was prone to getting black scuffmarks I thought of making one. Googling brought me to this link. Then I was watching one of Malitose79's videos on youtube (not sure which one!) and she showed the tennis ball on a stick but put a dryer sheet on the end and used it to clean baseboards in the home! Brilliant! So, I'll kill two birds with one stone and have a dual purpose tool!
The dryer sheets can be added by taking the ball of the stick and tucking as many as the edges as you can into the hole. The dryer sheet leaves a coating on the baseboards that deters dust and makes it less likely to stick to the wood. How cool is that?
I cut my tennis ball with a box cutter, making an X into one side. After I dusted all the baseboards from the downstairs this is what was on my handy dandy duster. Pretty icky and I am a regular duster of my baseboards. The fabric sheets really grip the dust and remove dust and dirt.
I must tell you to PLEASE use caution when cutting your tennis ball! I kept reminding myself to be careful over and over and was being very cautious. While holding and cutting my ball open, I slipped and sliced the palm of my hand open which took an emergency trip to the ER to get a tetanus shot to see if I needed stitches. No stitches thankfully! So please stick your tennis ball in some channel locks, a vice or some other contraption that will hold the ball AWAY from your hands. I cannot stress this enough!
