Non-gross ceiling fan cleaning technique

Thanks to Phillip from Austin, Texas for this fab hip trick!

If you’re anything like me, the ceiling fan is that last place you think to include in the weekly (ahem, or monthly) dusting adventure. Well, by the time you do think of it, the task of de-gunking this kind of scenario is just gross.

Here’s where a thrift store pillowcase and a bit of water come into play. Simply slide each arm of your fan inside the slightly dampened pillowcase, pulling off eons of dust accumulation and capturing it all inside the pillowcase. Give it another swipe with a half-vinegar-half-water spritzed cloth and proceed to forget about the fans for another few months.
