Believe it or not, although Aldi is a limited-inventory store, it’s not too difficult to make it a one-stop shop for your weekly groceries and household needs. When it comes to household goods such as toiletries and cleaning products, Aldi has an aisle that can meet most, if not all, of your needs.

Regarding cleaning products specifically, Aldi carries certain name brands such as Tide laundry detergent, Cascade dishwasher pacs, Dawn dish detergent, and Fabuloso multi-purpose cleaner.

Aldi also stocks some cleaning products under its Radiance house brand. The Radiance brand includes items such as:

Recently, I spotted a duster kit that fits with Swiffer Dusters but can also be used on its own. I picked up a kit to try in my house.

Radiance Household Duster Kit

The Radiance Household Duster Kit cost $2.29 at the time of publication. The box states this “fits with Swiffer Dusters,” and I’d say this looks exactly like a Swiffer Duster, right down to how the handle is constructed.

For comparison, an identical Swiffer Duster kit with the handle and five dusters cost $5.44 at Walmart at the time of writing. That’s more than twice the cost of the Aldi duster kit, and Swiffer Duster kits cost even more on Amazon, so you’re definitely getting the better deal at Aldi.

This kit is a Regular Buy, so you should be able to find it at Aldi any time of year.

The contents of the box: two plastic pieces that fit together to form a handle, plus a package containing 5 duster sleeves.

This kit comes with the following:

  • 1 handle (in two pieces)
  • 5 disposable pads

The duster kit claims it traps dust, dirt, and pet hair. It uses fragrance-free pads that can be used on multiple types of surfaces and claim to lock away dirt. The pads are disposable, but the box advises they should not be flushed down the toilet when you’re done with them.

The box also instructs not to use these on hot or wet surfaces. Do not launder the cloths and do no use sprays or liquids on the cloths.

The side of the box features simple assembly instructions for the duster. To assemble, insert the prongs into the handle. Slide the prong through the center sleeve of the duster. Insert the button on the prong through the slit on the sleeve. Shake to fluff the duster fibers, and then use it on any dry surface that attracts dust. To remove the duster sleeve, unbutton it from the slit and slide the duster off the handle.

The assembled duster.

This duster is pretty easy to use, and it’s so simple to assemble that it almost doesn’t require any instructions. The handle is lightweight and the prong attachment is flexible and feels somewhat cheap, but it gets the job done, and I like how the handle has a hook so you can hang it up when you are not using it. It’s easy to slide a duster pad onto the prongs, and then you can get right down to work running the duster along all kinds of surfaces.

This is good for dusting furniture, shelves, end tables and nightstands, wall art and picture frames, my television and tv stand (which always seem to attract a lot of dust), the top of the refrigerator, ceiling fans, lamps and lamp shades, and even my vehicle dashboard (which also gets surprisingly dusty). This duster would also work well in an office work setting where it could be used to dust computers and technology as well as desktops.

It’s unfortunate that the duster pads are not washable, so there is a limit to how many times they can be used. I also noticed that sometimes, depending on what kind of surface I’m dusting, the duster pad slides off the handle and I have to put it back on. The soft fluffy bits on the duster pad also sometimes get caught or shed off on certain surfaces that have sharper corners or edges.

A kit like this is not the greatest in terms of keeping plastic and other waste out of landfills, but I am hopeful that the five-pack that comes with this dusting kit will last me a long time. I’ll update this post with any potential new developments as I continue to use the duster.

The Verdict:

The Radiance Household Duster Kit looks identical to Swiffer Duster kits that cost more than twice as much money. It includes a handle (some assembly required; it’s very easy) and five duster sleeves that you can throw away as they get too dirty. If you’re a fan of Swiffer products, it’s well worth giving this Aldi version a try as we don’t see any noticeable differences between the two brands other than price.

  1. Unlike the brand name item:
    – these dusters do not stay on the handle well. I threw the handle away and have taken to use them on the brand name handle.
    – the disposable pads only have opening to insert the handle on one end, which means you can not turn them around as you can the name brand.

  2. My experience with this duster is that it did not collect the dust, but merely pushed it onto the floor.
