without turning the whole room into one large dust bowl.
Did you know that when dust sits around, dust mites move in?
or every other month if you use your fan year-round.
Remember the early discussion about mites…yea, just sayin’. 🙂
The best supplies for this cleaning task are:
- old sheet
- old pillowcase
- spray bottle
- distilled vinegar
- hat (I suggest a baseball cap, doesn’t have to be stylin’) 🙂
- cotton cloth
- Tape down the fan’s switch. Just a little reminder to tell people, “Step away from the fan.”
- Spread an old sheet over anything under the fan (an area about twice as wide as the blades)
- Fill a spray bottle with warm water and about two tablespoons of distilled vinegar
- Spritz the inside of an old pillowcase
- Put on your hat (this step is optional, but I don’t think anybody likes dust in the face)
- Grab a step-ladder that puts you a little taller than the blade
- Slide the pillow case over each blade, pulling it back to trap the dust
- Use cotton cloth to dust the base and light fixtures
you will have cleaned your ceiling fan in just 15 minutes! Impressive, right?
