    Question Displays and Dust

    When you leave figures and toys out for display, what's the best way you've found to keep them clean? Do you display them in enclosed cases? Do you have to pull out a feather-duster periodically? Or do you limit the time out in the elements altogether to avoid dirt and light damage?

    I hate dusting period, so I do it as little as possible, even more so now in the areas I have my figures set up. It's a time consuming task to move the figures, weapons, lightning bolts and such, dust and then move them back into place. I'll probably dust everything down as I pack it away for my move in April.

    I occasionally dust off my toys. I'm a carded collector. The dust makes the pacakging not as vibrant but it does take a lot of time to dust.

    In Southern California, there is simply no escaping the dust. I'm not even sure that sealed display cases would work ... it simply creeps every place. So, you have to pick the stuff up, move it all, gently dust it all off and then put it back.

    If you can keep and display your stuff in a sealed room or in a sealed case, it's gonna help for sure. You may have to dust once every 2/3 months instead of every month.

    I have all my stuff in one room and on many shelves. I keep the door closed along with the central air vent closed. The room is facing north and it really never gets hot, but it does get cold. So far no dust.

    Where did you pick that up at? I've seen the cans used for dusting keyboards and computer boards, is this one and the same?

    I use DustOff Plus which I pick up at places like Panavision and other expendable supply stores in town. It looks like you can get it from other camera shops or online...

    I never dust my figures because there are just way too many of them to dust around. Plus, if I tried dusting them they would probably fall over like dominoes. Using canned air to blow the dust away doesn't clean the mess, it just scatters it all over the place, so that's something I avoid doing. In one year I think I've dusted my figures/shelves twice at most.
