Dust is not problem per se. The real problem is that the dust is always the wrong colour. If you have dark wood floors, you will be beset with pale grey dust. If you have pristine white surfaces, they will beckon dark ashen dust.

There is actually a very simple and surprising explanation of why this should happen, but I have no idea what it is.

However.

MaxiClean is somewhat proud to introduce its new Custom Dustom colour-matching service. Simply visit one of our booths (located in most major shopping centres), bringing with you a sample of your flooring or worktop surfaces and the contents of your vacuum cleaner.

In the twinkling of an eye, one of our trained experts will have analysed both the surface and the dust, and our advanced dust- mixing equipment will create the perfect blend of weatherproof, waterproof and fade-resistant coloured Custom Dustom (tm) to balance the colour of your own house dust.

When you return home, simply sprinkle the contents of one Custom Dustom sachet over every 10 square metres of floor or worktop, and use the free DustShiffler to scatter the dust uniformly.

Your personalized Custom Dustom will blend with the natural dust of your home, creating a perfect colour-match for your hardwood floors, melamine worktops or beechwood cabinets.

Custom Dustom - it's a mustom. So go getsom.

       but dust IS a problem and not everything in the house is the same colour...white tile, blue rug, slate floor...

       We can match all of those.

       If you combined a variety of small particle with a type of decorative clothing to wear (that compliments a shirt) AND two musical notes AND that which is needed to open a door, which famous Russian would you get? (+ by the way in case you hadn't noticed)

       Dusty Evgy Handel, of course - the bastard child of the classical composer and the 60's English female singer.

       Should also contain antihistamines & bronchodilators, for those whose response to dust isn't purely aesthetic.
