Dust Your Ceiling Fan with a Repurposed Pillow Case

pillow case to clean ceiling fan

The only thing worse than dust on the blades of the ceiling fan is the physical chore of actually dusting the ceiling fan. It can be messy with dust flying around your room and it can be awkward because the ceiling is not an easy place to access. Make your life a bit easier by repurposing an old pillow case to do the job for you. Place the pillow case over the entire blade and gently slide the pillow case down the length of the blade, allowing the dust to catch inside the case. Repeat for each blade and then toss the pillow case into the washing machine to clean.

But what about those reusable bags sitting on our kitchen floor or countertop? Reusable grocery bags can harbor all sorts of icky stuff left by raw meat packaging, unwashed fruits and vegetables, and from unclean surfaces. To wash toss those reusable bags in the wash on a warm, gentle cycle or hand wash in warm, soapy water and hang to dry.
