Dust bunnies are not as a fluffy and adorable as they sound; they are in fact clumps of dust and dirt that hide in corners and under your furniture! Dust can also trigger allergies and be bad for your family’s health so make sure these unwanted ‘pets’ don’t take over your home, with our article on what causes dust bunnies, where do dust bunnies come from, and how do you get rid of them?
What are Dust Bunnies Made Of?
Dust is a mixture of human and animal skin cells and hair, soil and clothing fibres. Dust bunnies form when dust particles are attracted to each other by static electricity, until they become large balls of dust.
Want to know why are they called dust bunnies? Because they look a little like fuzzy creatures lurking under your bed!
However, dust bunnies can also collect things like dead insects and mould spores, and crucially, provide attractive feeding grounds for dust mites. Not so cute, and not so good for your health.
