Make Your Own Dustless Cloth

Clipped from Modern Woman magazine (volume 17 number 1, 1948), how to make your own dustless cloth from cheese cloth.  But before you get to the scan...

This reminds me of how shocked I am by all the ads for the disposable dusting cloths. It wasn't that long ago, just the '90s -- the 1990s, we were all up in arms about disposable diapers, straws and their wrappers, wasteful packaging etc.; now here we are, filling our garbage bags and landfills with disposable cloths. And in this economy! Far more practical and green all the way around to use dusting  and cleaning cloths we can reuse.
