Quick tip
















It's summer again and well it gets hot! Many people use a fan to cool off. Every year people get their fans out of storage and realize that the fan is, well kind of dusty, you don't really want to use it with all that dust on it because it will just spread the dust every where, and cleaning it is a big pain.

I am always looking for a short cut and quick cleaning ideas. The other day I was cleaning my keyboard with the can duster and thought hmmm will this work on other things. The first thing I
tried was my fan, and it worked great! Just spray your fan and most of the dust will come off! Have fun experimenting cleaning other  things with the spray can duster!
