I do not like this fan. I never have, and I never will. I made some rash statement about how I wouldn't clean it, because we'll just get a new one. . . but that hasn't happened and the dust is getting embarrassingly thick. Sooo. . . today I clean. And I have some ideas to make it a little less 1980's looking. I'll keep you posted.
Of course as soon as I got all of the cleaner out and the shades off, Gabe woke up. It might take me all week just to clean it!
