Danny Lipford: Everybody has a ceiling fan and most likely you rarely clean the ceiling fan. And it attracts so much dust, because little bit hard to pull the ladder out and to do all of the cleaning necessary.

This will make it a lot easier. You can use an extension rod like this, a roller frame, a roller pad. And then I’ve attached a dryer sheet on the pad with a couple rubber bands. And this works so well to just rub all of the blades and get that dust off of there. You can get all the spider webs off of it.

It just does a good job, and you never have to worry about breaking out the ladder. And then you can just pull the dryer sheet off and throw it away.
