Have you ever tried cleaning a ceiling fan only to have the dust fall onto the bed or floor below? I learned the following trick years ago from a magazine and it ends that problem.
All you need is an old pillow case.
Insert a fan blade into the pillow case. Wrap the ends tightly around the blade and start moving the pillow case down the blade.
…all the way to the end. Your fan is now clean and the dust is contained in the pillow case. Isn’t that nifty?!
Do you have ceiling fans in your home? How do you keep them clean? Let us know in the comments.

So glad I clicked over from your top ten post to read this tip! I don’t like cleaning ceiling fans because of the mess. I happen to have a few old pillow cases that I can use.
I use the brush attachment for my vacuum..works perfectly! 🙂

That’s a good idea too. I’ll have to see if my brush attachment will reach my ceiling fan.
