Hurricane Spin Duster is a cordless spinning duster that uses static electricity to attract dust. Does it really work? Here is my Hurricane Spin Duster review.

Hurricane Spin Duster Review
It’s not surprising to see yet another “Hurricane” branded item, as BulbHead (aka Telebrands) has scored a huge hit with this line of cleaning products. In fact, three of my top four videos on YouTube are currently Hurricane brand products (Spin Scrubber, Spin Broom, and Fur Wizard). So now we have Hurricane Spin Duster, and the makers have pulled out the big guns by hiring Anthony Sullivan as its pitchman.
The design doesn’t feel revolutionary, as it is essentially a standard duster attached to a spinner. In fact, there was a test marketed item earlier this year called Spin Duster 360, which I believe was the early version of this product. That item disappeared and its website now forwards to BulbHead, which makes the Hurricane Spin Duster. Thus, it appears that the 360 brand couldn’t pull in enough interest, but BulbHead is now banking on the Hurricane brand to garner even more interest.
The experience of using a spin duster isn’t significantly different than using a regular duster, however the constant spinning will help clean and remove dust more quickly. Instead of wiping or brushing the manual way, you simple need to move the spinning brush along the surface and dust will be picked up (or sometimes kicked up) with minimal effort on your part. The advantage is less clear on large surfaces such as a table where you’d just swipe across it with a manual duster. You’ll see the most notable improvement over regular dusters in tight areas that are usually difficult to clean. Think of an elaborate wrought iron gate or between a washer and dryer.
I usually purchase cheap dusters at my local dollar store and use them a few times before tossing them. Thus, for someone in my situation it could be hard to justify a $28 price tag (with shipping), for some extra spinning action. The fact that you get three heads (or six if you double the offer, which I wouldn’t do) does ease this price point a bit, but you’re still paying almost $10 each if you consider this three different dusters.
Overall, Hurricane Spin Duster looks like it could be yet another popular item under the Hurricane umbrella. So far consumers have been pretty happy with most of the Hurricane products out there, and I suspect this will be no different. I’m not sure if it’s enough of an improvement over regular dusters to justify the cost.
