Well, this morning I was doing some extra cleaning, as I try to do at least once a week and I noticed this as I was folding clothes at the end of my bed. Night after night I had laid there while dust bunnies collected above my head. Eww!
Of course I have cleaned it since we have moved in three years ago. But it has been a couple months since I gave it a wipe down. I use to just take some pledge and rag to it, but that never worked because our bed sits right under the fan so when you use a rag or duster the debris fall all over the bed. I for one don't like that idea. Who wants dust all over their comforter and pillows. Another eww!
One of my good friends swore that using a pillowcase was the way to go. I had never thought of this idea, but I gave it a try.
It took me about three minutes to do the entire fan. And the best part there was no dirt on my bed.
Now let's take a peek at the inside of the pillowcase, cause you know I did.
Can you believe all that dust was just lingering over my head. Well now that I know the pillowcase trick works wonders you better believe I will be using it from now on. I have another ceiling fan I am getting ready to go do. :)
I hope I am not the only one that forgets to dust things sometimes. Out of sight out of mind seems to be my problem with a lot of it. :) So cheers to one super neat trick that will be used again and again.
How often do you clean ceiling fans or light fixtures? Do you have any neat cleaning tricks?
