"Everything in our homes gathers dust. But what exactly is it? Where does it
come from, and why does it keep coming back? Is it from outside? Is it fibres
from our clothes and cells from our skin?
Yes, but it’s a lot more than that.
People from all around Australia have been sending their dust to Macquarie
University’s DustSafe program. Instead of emptying the vacuum cleaner into the
bin, they package it up and we analyse it. As a result, we are getting to know
the secrets of your dust! In total, 35 countries are part of this program.
Here’s a taste of what we know so far."
