We try to avoid the words "life changing” when it comes to simple housekeeping hacks like this one but, quite frankly, this cleaning hack will actually change your life. Not in a big way, but in a great way. Ceiling fans are notorious for the dust they gather. People often don’t even realize they’re getting dirty until the buildup starts to peek over the edges of the blades, by which point the topside is a thickly caked mess.
The good news is, even if you’ve inadvertently let your fan get that dirty, there’s hope! This brilliant pillowcase maneuver will clean your ceiling fan in a jiffy, and even better will trap all that allergy-inducing bad stuff while you’re at it.
