When cleaning the house, I’ve never been very thorough when it comes to dusting. Living in India has really highlighted this deficiency in my housekeeping skills. It’s a very dirty country. Dusting almost has to be done daily, as it relentlessly settles all over the house.
One thing has me extremely puzzled though. That’s the amount of dust that manages to attach itself to the ceiling fans. It’s so hot here, the ceiling fan in the bedroom is almost always on, night and day (my desk is in the bedroom), yet dust ends up literally hanging off it. Even the bottom side of the blade! The fan looks like it’s growing mould!
When huge chunks of dust start flying off the fan in all directions, I know it’s time to clean it! I’m at a complete loss to understand how the dust gets there in the first place though. How can so much dust possibly attach itself to a moving object? The ceiling fan in the kitchen rarely gets used and has less dust on it!
