With the warmer weather coming, I thought I would get my fans out of storage and clean them..only to find that my favorite small fan ( I also like white noise when I sleep) is GROSS with dust. So I got the screwdriver and went to take it visible screws!! I can't find a way to take it apart!!!
I just spend 15 mins. cleaning all the shield with q-tips and vinegar, but they're too short to reach the blades :S I can't shake it in a bag of rice cause the rice might get in the motor...anyone have any ides??

Heck if the tire places charge go pay 50c and go to the gas station and use the air fill up stations for your tires. Also you may be able to use one of those swiffer wand things...I know they have different's worth a shot...will prob work on standard size fans...not sure on the tiny ones.
