Vacuum

Easiest way is to use your soft bristle brush attachment on your vacuum and clean in the direction of the hair and fur grows. A good furniture polish sprayed on a soft cloth will give the hair a glisten, but remember, it adds a layer of oil that will further attract dust and dirt.


Swiffer

I use the swiffer sheets or any other brand name works. The dust clings to the sheets and therefore no residue.


If the deer has nicotine and tar soils with dust.

If your mount is soiled with nicotine and tar soils mixed with dust our Epo-Grip Bloodout/Degreaser does an excellent job in removing the soils. A good hair conditioner can be applied after the cleaning to restore the hairs luster.


I can't take it...

Please forgive me, but do you do windows? I am sorry ,George,perhaps too much time in the shop. Maybe the swiffer and vacuum thing can be a new trend?

Wallpaper cleaner

I haven't looked for it lately, but the old clay consistancy wallpaper cleaner works well. If nothing else is handy, plain old white bread with crust removed and hand-pressed into a ball will pick up dust without leaving tracks or residue, especially on bird feathers..........I don't do windows, and Lisa.....what is a swiffer?/I would ask the maid, but her english is not so very good......lol
