If you like to save some money go and try a this product. Mr. Clean's Magic eraser. I have used them religiously almost on cleaning apartment walls that were scuffed up and was trying to avoid repainting them. That and hot water.

Other than that, for light dusting, a duster works well for light cleaning.
