Clean Ceiling Fans Easily!

This Sparked Me!

An easy way to clean the ceiling fan is to cover your hands in a pair of old socks. Dip them in warm sudsy water and run your hand over top and bottom of each blade. Next time you clean the blades to your ceiling fan apply a thin coat of floor wax to them. It will keep future dust from clinging!!

Really, this tip is such a help. The dust on fans tends to be too sticky for regular dusters. Try it and you will love it.

    I liked this secret so much, I just got up and cleaned one of my ceiling fans. I found that dusting with a vacuum first, then using the pillow case worked best for me, less mess. Perhaps I need to clean more often! emoticon

    Like this idea, will need to give it a try seeing as I am now in a place w/several ceiling fans.
