The other night I was staring up at my ceiling fan. All I could see was the unsightly dust buildup that has been hiding on the top of the blades and has starting flowing over the sides.
The fan is a place we forget to clean. Out of sight, out of mind. I have a very simple solution to the problem. Use a pillowcase to wipe away the dust. Anything that falls will be caught in the pillowcase, safe to be shaken out outside. This will keep everything under the fan nice and clean.
