The simple yet dreary routine of housecleaning is a stifling experience to some. As such, these simple but effective fist weapons enliven boring daily chores by making them ten times more awesome. The invention of fistfighter, amateur sorcerer and generally boisterous thrillseeker Indy Balboa who couldn't be bothered with sweeping up dust and mopping up dirt, the duster knuckle conformed to his most basic principle of 'if it can't be accomplished by punching something, it probably isn't worth doing'. Unfortunately, his late mother's collection of antique vases didn't agree with his innovative ideas about housework, but at least the countless shards were very clean.
Aside fom allowing you to make lethal attacks with your fists, these brass knuckles also clean everything they punch. This functions as the cleaning effect of the prestidigitation spell, and can be used at will as an attack action. Any surface you hit is cleaned spotlessly, and even sludgy matter such as slime or grease is obliterated on contact.
As an unintended but very useful side effect, the cleaning effect of the duster knuckles also works on creatures, and prevents your unarmed attacks from attracting any diseases and poisons transmitted by physical contact. Furthermore if any creature or object is covered by a layer of dirt, grime or sludge that offers it some form of protective benefit, the duster knuckles ignores any such protections. The duster knuckle deals +1d4 points of damage to creatures of the Ooze type.
Duster knuckles can be enhanced like a mundane weapon.
