This trick has been around for a while but works great to clean the dust bunnies off your fan.

  1. Get a pillowcase you don’t mind getting dirty.
  2. Next get a spray bottle and fill with white vinegar and water.
  3. Spray the inside of the pillowcase with the vinegar spray.
  4. Carefully get a ladder and slip the pillowcase over each blade on your fan.
  5. Wiping it towards you with the damp pillowcase will trap the dust and allow it to fall inside the pillowcase instead of onto the floor or bed.
  6. Move to the next fan blade and repeat.
