How to Clean Your Ceiling Fan... 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.
Slide an old case over a fan's blade then pull the fabric back, keeping all the dust and dirt contained.
Garment Covers: Slit the seamed end of pretty pillowcases, apply liquid stitching adhesive, and cover the opening with coordinating bias tape. Slip over hangers.
Working with one blade at a time, slide an old pillowcase over the blade, then slowly draw the fabric back. All the dust and dirt will stay in the pillowcase instead of flying everywhere.
