[Answer] What is the main ingredient in the dust found in a home?

Step 1 : Introduction to the question "What is the main ingredient in the dust found in a home?"

In reality, very little of a human's normal environment consists of dead, sloughed-off skin. More common dust pollutants are sand, insect waste, animal dander and possibly flour, if frequent baking is your thing. Most of the dust in our homes is nothing more than good, old-fashioned dirt. Humans do shed dead skin but most is lost in the shower rather than floating from our bodies to the floor. Source: LiveScience.com
