Your ceiling fans tell the whole world whether you are a clean freak or a slob.
Gulp! That’s one of my ceiling fans pictured. See the dust family reunion gathered on all its edges?
Thankfully, it’s hidden away in a bedroom, safe from prying eyes. And, yes, I’ve dusted it recently.
One glance upwards during a dinner party, and if your guests see a fan like the pictured one, they may wonder if they should eat another bite. Seriously! Their thoughts will circle around this track — I wonder how much of that fuzz-laden horror ends up in my food?
Allergies in the family? Relieve your friends and your own family’s lungs by regularly dusting your ceiling fans.
Now, you don’t really need anything fancy-schmancy to dust that fan IF you can reach it. You could stand on the bed, microfiber rag in hand, and dust away. Cough, cough! Just imagine what your bedcovers say.
However, I want you to meet my friend, the extended handle Swiffer.
Sigh. I should’ve become an affiliate long ago. I have “sold” lots of Swiffers to my friends and clients. They are wonderful. The head adjusts to tilt at 45 and 90 degree angles. You can toss the dirty, dust-filled heads out. They easily reach behind and under furniture. Your windows, door ledges, and baseboard ledges can all be reached without bending. My back loves my Swiffer!
I’ve tried the colorful, plastic fibered dusting wands. Meh! I sometimes use a lambswool duster. Once in a while, lambswool is better, especially for bamboo window shades that really snag the Swiffer fibers.
My favorite dusting tool, hands down, is still my handy-dandy Swiffer with the extended handle. That way I don’t have to dust while standing on the bed unless there is a cathedral ceiling involved. Sometimes I do have to stand on a chair, too, for high ceiling fans in living and dining areas.
Like a fair-weather friend, ANY ceiling fan will gladly tell ALL the dirt about your cleaning services or your personal housekeeping. So make them hush with a weekly “Swiffering”. Just click on my affiliate link (finally) below!
