I really cannot come to a conclusion on the proper order of these tasks. I can justify it both ways. Dust first, because then you will vacuum up the dust the is inevitably pushed off the furniture (even if wet-dusting). Vacuum first, because vacuuming unsettles a lot of dust in the carpeting, kicking it back into the air where it will re-settle on the furniture just dusted. But one thing I'm not going to do is dust, vacuum, and re-dust. So how would you do it?
