The OXO Good Grips Microfiber Extendable Duster head puts dust within reach. The sturdy, lightweight aluminum body extends to 54” long with a quick twist to easily dust those hard-to-reach places. The Duster head rotates 270 degrees and locks at multiple angles, depending on your cleaning needs. Lock the Duster head in a vertical position to clean ceiling vents and light fixtures or at a right angle to remove dust from the tops of bookshelves and cabinets. When you’re done with one side, simply rotate the head to use the clean side of the duster head for extended cleaning.
Top customer reviews
Here are my plusses and minuses, by number of stars, for this duster, the
OXO Good Grips Microfiber Extendable Duster
Eurow Electrostatic Duster with 3 sections extension pole
in a few categories.
As you can see, I like both of these dusters!
1. How well does the dust-head work?
***** 5 stars Oxo - The cleaning head is very soft, but the filaments are wider and shorter, more cloth-like, than the extremely soft ones of the Eurow. This makes the Oxo not as good on objects like the masks. However, the Oxo is better on general, and especially on more heavy-duty, dusting. I don't dust as often as I should, so the tops of hanging painting frames, for example, can get quite a layer of dust. The Oxo is better at capturing the thicker dust, rather than just pushing it off of the frames. I don't have a ceiling fan to try it on, but I would think this would work well on dusting the top of the fan blades.
***** 5 stars Eurow - The cleaning head is made up of soft filaments. This duster is better at plain old dusting of objects with crevices. For example, we have a set of leather masks hanging on the wall. The very light filaments can be swirled around the masks, fluffing away dust in all the folds and crevices, without in any way damaging the masks. This picks up spider webs and dustballs, but just regular soft dust, in spite of the "electrostatic" in the duster's name, is more fluffed into the air.
2. How adjustable is the dust-head?
**** 4 stars Oxo - The head itself is not flexible, which, again, can be very handy, especially for more heavy-duty jobs. However, you can easily change the angle of the head using the sturdy button at it's connection to the pole.
**** 4 stars Eurow - The head is made with a heavy wire center, rather like a giant pipe-cleaner. This can be bent into a curve or at a soft right-angle, which can be very handy. The wire center is sturdy, though, it's not like you can twist it into a pretzel. And, like a pipe-cleaner, once you've bent it, it takes a bit of work to get it perfectly straight again. (Not that it would make much difference if it isn't perfectly straight.)
3. Ease of extension and adjustability?
****+ 4.5 stars Oxo - The Oxo is shorter, extending to 54" total. I'm only taking half a star off for that because it's length is plenty for most places. The head is heavier than the Eurow's head, but still easy to direct at 54". However, around anything a bit delicate, the fully extended Oxo, especially as it's dust-catching fibers are shorter, will need a little more care and control.
***** 5 stars Eurow - The Eurow can go up to 76", which is a very nice length indeed, especially as it is very light and I have no trouble directing it when fully extended. It isn't long enough to reach the ceiling in the two-story entry-way (without a ladder), but every where else it can handle.
4. How easy is the dust-head to clean?
***** 5 stars Oxo - The dust-head is removable, as it's attached with a snap. You can wash it in the machine, or just swish it around in water or soapy water. Extending the pole is easy; retracting is easy.
***** 5 stars Eurow - The dust-head doesn't come off the pole, but it is super easy to clean. If shaking it off isn't enough, just run it under the tap. Extending the pole is easy; retracting is easy.
FYI, if you have the OXO Good Grips Microfiber Extendable Duster, you can purchase additional/replacement dust heads:
OXO Good Grips Microfiber Duster Refill
This OXO extendable duster is better at picking up dust from smooth surfaces (tables, shelves, etc.) than the Swiffer extended duster, but it doesn't seem to be quite as versatile. The OXO would be unable to slide into small spaces without knocking things over, or delicately dust a chandalier like the Swiffer can. The OXO is also much heavier than the Swiffer, but the OXO extendable pole is also of a much higher quality.
The OXO microfiber head is reusable and so it can be machine washed. However, I used this duster around my apartment 1 time, washed and dried it, and the fibers in the area that was most heavily used remained all matted down.
In the end, I would not buy this product again.
November 5, 2014: After inadvertently breaking the handle, I purchased another OXO Good-Grips microfiber duster a couple of weeks ago. What a disappointment. The duster is now thinner and narrower than the one I had purchased in July 2013. It also does not pick up dust well. This new version puts most of the dust back onto the furniture. It sheds a lot more than the one I purchased last year, leaving a trail of orange fiber wherever I walk. Fortunately, I still have my earlier duster, so I was able to salvage this purchase by replacing the useless duster with my old one, which after 15 months of continuous use still picks up dust like a champ. I do not recommend this new version of the OXO Good-Grips Microfiber Extendable Duster. Perhaps some other reviewer can recommend a better product. Better still, perhaps the manufacturer will salvage its brand by offering a better quality product.
