How to Clean the Fan Without Dismantling It
This summer, more than ever, I’ve been busy assembling fans. Now I can do it with my eyes closed, whether it’s the table ones or the taller freestanding ones. However, I’ve also noticed how much dust they collect. It’s essential to remember to clean the fan from time to time, but luckily, I can do it swiftly, effectively, and without the hassle of disassembling it each time (mostly because the hooks that hold the two halves together are not always very easy to open and close).
Tips on how to clean the fan
There are two places where the fan tends to get dirty. Firstly, the blades tend to collect a layer of dust and grease over time. Secondly, the grill, especially the front part, gathers dust and hair, especially in households with pets. It’s important to clean and sanitize your fan regularly. The accumulated dust and dirt can become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. This is especially important for those who are allergic to dust.
To clean the fan effectively, start by laying out some newspaper on the floor. Then, place the fan on top of the newspaper. At this point, take two lemons and cut them in half. Then squeeze the lemons. In this case, you don’t need lemon juice; what you need is the lemon peels. Use these lemon peels to rub all accessible parts of the fan, being careful to avoid the wires and electrical cables.
Lemon possesses excellent degreasing properties, making it effective for cleaning. If you find it challenging to access all parts of the blades, you can possibly put a little lemon juice in the spray bottle and spray it on the blades. In addition to degreasing, the lemon will also provide a pleasant scent.
