Due to copyright restrictions, I cannot republish the content I found on Real Simple's website about cleaning a ceiling fan. I can, however, give you the link to the information. The directions for cleaning a ceiling fan include a pillow case and spray bottle with distilled white vinegar and water. It seems like an excellent idea. I know when I used to clean the ceiling fan at my parent's home, it was disgusting and dust ended up everywhere.

We have a small tabletop fan that we use every night to drown out the apartment living noises while we sleep. Unfortunately it does not come apart for easy cleaning. If you have any wonderful ideas on how to clean a fan like this, please share!
