How to clean up Diatomaceous Earth
Cleaning up Diatomaceous Earth or DE for short is pretty simple but there are a couple things you should know before you go running around the house dusting DE.
You can vacuum, mop or wipe up Diatomaceous Earth with a lightly wet towel.
When it comes to vacuums you might want to consider this first - Please note that due to DE’s rough abrasive texture it can damage traditional vacuum filters very quickly. Filter less vacuums are the best option to collect any Diatomaceous Earth that is on your floor or carpet. If you can use a regular vacuum if you don’t have access to a filter less one but please be very careful about how long and how much you vacuum and please be sure clean out the filter every couple of minutes to minimise the damage.
-- Mop heads and towels
Wash all towels and mop heads that have come into contact with DE on their own right after use, after the first wash they can be washed with other items as per usual.
