One of those dusters that are specially trated to attract dust; or else a Swiffer-type cloth bunched up so its all fluffy, and then tied (or taped) to a pole or a broomstick. As a last resort, very gently with the brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner, and then vacuum any "popcorn" you've knocked down of off everything underneath.

You might want to check the air filter(s) on your heating system - nice new clean ones could help keep the dust from coming back.
