“I love dusting” — said no one ever… That is, until they get their hands on the Scrub Daddy Damp Duster. The original version of this sponge-like cleaning tool went viral on TikTok almost as soon as it launched in 2021, and now there’s a whole new Damp Duster Towel version that’s got everyone buzzing again. So what’s all the hype about? And why are these reusable dust sponges so hard to find at our favorite stores?

With the popularity of the Damp Duster skyrocketing, it’s no surprise they sell out fast. But just because something’s in demand doesn’t mean you should overpay. Let me go over exactly what the Damp Duster is and where to find each version at the cheapest price.

There are two versions of the Scrub Daddy Damp Duster — but both do basically the same thing.

Unlike fluffy feather dusters that scatter dust around without actually picking it up, the Scrub Daddy Damp Duster uses a special damp material (you add the water) that grabs onto dust and debris, trapping it in tiny grooves until you wash the duster off.

You can safely use the Damp Duster to clean all kinds of surfaces, including countertops, furniture, and electronics.

Currently, there are two versions:


1. Damp Duster, $5.99

The O.G. Damp Duster, $5.99 on ScrubDaddy.com, has a sponge-like material that works its magic when you add water. Once it’s damp, the material gets soft and easily picks up dirt without scratching delicate surfaces. It’s awesome for cleaning up dust, dirt, and pet hair around the house.

TIP: Currently, the cheapest place to buy the original Damp Duster is on Scrub Daddy’s website, but they tend to sell out quickly. You can also buy the Damp Duster on Amazon, but you’ll pay about twice as much ($11.73), and deal with a third-party seller.


2. Damp Duster Towel, $5.99

The new kid on the block is the Damp Duster Towel, $5.99 on ScrubDaddy.com, which is basically a bigger, towel-like version of the original. This bad boy can be used wet or dry and is perfect for cleaning larger surfaces (or for squeezing into tight spaces).


The O.G. Damp Duster has been out since 2021.

You’ve likely already familiar with the Scrub Daddy brand and their trendy cleaning products (hello smiley face sponge!) that launched in 2012. The first Scrub Daddy Damp Duster tool hit the scene in 2021 and quickly became a fan favorite for its effectiveness and user-friendliness.

The Scrub Daddy company came out with the Damp Duster Towel a year later, in 2022.


The Damp Dusters sell out quickly online, and you’ll pay third-party markup on Amazon and other sites.

You can find the Scrub Daddy Damp Duster and Damp Duster Towel at a bunch of online and physical stores, including Amazon, Walmart, Target, and of course, the official Scrub Daddy website.

These babies are so popular that they often sell out, especially when there’s a big cleaning season or special promotion going on. Keep in mind when purchasing outside of the official Scrub Daddy website, prices may be higher, as you’ll be shopping from third-party retailers. We did purchase one from the listed third-party retailer on Amazon and it worked out just fine, but your mileage may vary.

If you can’t find a Damp Duster in stock, sign up for email notifications from your favorite store so they can give you a heads-up when they’re back. You can also keep an eye on the Scrub Daddy website and social media for updates on when they’ll be restocked.
