Even when I clean my ceiling fan with a swiffer duster I have little particles falling on me the whole time, I am constantly blowing dust away from me. This makes this the perfect idea. You take a pillow case run it the length of the blade and that's it you are done, no mess, no dust particles, no falling pieces, it all stays encased in the pillowcase and then you can just throw the pillow case into the laundry. How easy and genius is that??
