getting rid of/minimizing floating dust in my room

how is this achievable? my dorm room has plenty of dust floating around, it makes it harder to breath when I wake up in the morning and dust particles go in my eyes, it strings my eyes constantly. is there a way to minimize floating dust particles? thanks
the ones from Sharper image are pretty cool.
and they are easy-peasy to clean.

kinda pricey tho.
get an air filter/purifer but no do NOT get the sharper image one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they are expensive and don't work for shiznit! nothign close to real purifers.

"Do not buy a Sharper Image Ionic Breeze.

Consumers Reports just did a test on air cleaners and dissed this big time.

Here is their top 5 (cost/filter):

Friedrich C-90A $500/$72
Kenmore 83202 83200, Whirlpool AP51030HO $350/$220
Whirlpool AP45030HO $270/$130
Bionaire BAP-1300 Holmes HAP675RC $225/$132
Honeywell Enviracare 50250 $180/$156 "
Dust your room, then vaccum it. Wait a day or two. Repeat. Continue until you can breathe normally.
Go to target and buy an Air Purifier, probably the smallest kind.

Wear a fully enclosed body suit? 90% of household dust is made up of dead human skin.

but wouldn't you just be trapping them closer to you?

Small, cheap 99% HEPA filters work quite well for just removing dust, but they can get expensive with filter changes every 6 months or so...

It would keep the dust out of the room, though! :laugh:
Open the window, and have a fan blowing air out of the room through the window.
