How to Clean Fan Blades (without a Dusty Mess!)

So the other morning My Hubby and I were snuggling in the bed when I looked up and noticed how dusty my fan blades had gotten. I mean they were really bad! I remembered a clever little trick I had seen awhile ago and decided right then and there to try it out. Lucky for you he decided to film me doing said trick. So you get the benefit of both my very first video on Homemaker Chic, and also a very nifty way to clean your fan blades without getting dust all over the place. Enjoy!

I am serious about this one! Every time I have to clean them (which it seems very often) I hate it and can’t find an easy way to do so. Anything you can find out would be helpful! 🙂

There is no easy way. Vacuum regularly and use a microfiber cloth (wet) to get the grime off

You can use normal ones too. As long as they are darker colored they wash right up.
