How To Clean a Ceiling Fan... Slide a pillow case over each blade and wipe clean. The dust goes in the pillow case and can be repeated until all blades are clean. When you're done, take it outside and shake the dust loose, then launder the pillow case.
How often you need to clean everything in your home (and how to do it!)
We love this trick for dusting off the blades of a grimy ceiling fan without getting a face full of dust. Simply slide each blade, one at a time, into a pillowcase and wipe off the blade with the inside of the pillowcase. All the dust, dirt, and debris will stay inside. Then simply shake out the case outside and throw it in the laundry bin.
