New use for battery leaf blowers … house cleaning !
Posted by: cbelt3

Mrs. Cbelt3 was commenting that the stairs were a bit dusty.

Idea !

Battery leaf blower was used. Only two pictures fell off the wall. Dust was redistributed.

I followed up by cleaning under the refrigerator the same way.

Mrs. Cbelt3 …. facepalm

I started using leaf blowers to clean out vans many years ago. So there was a precedent!

I think that is referred to as house dirtying, not house cleaning.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I've been told to put a large wet towel or bedsheet in the middle of the room, blow the dust from the outside towards the center but never directly at the center.. A great deal of the dust will settle on it, the dampness making it cling. Supposed to make for easy cleanup.

You know they make appliances that suck the dust instead of spreading it all around. Google to find out what they're called.

Totally unnecessary for minivans. Just drive down the highway with all the windows and sliding doors open. You'll be surprised by how many people honk and gesticulate wildly at you to point out HEY YOUR DOORS ARE OPEN, as years of accumulated detritus goes flying out onto the road.

I don't have an electric leaf blower, but my gas leaf blower works great for light, powdery snow on the sidewalk. Sooo much easier and faster than trying to shovel the white stuff.

My brother used to put his dirty pots and pans in the back of his pickup and take them to the car wash.

Interesting; I'll have to try that in my RV. The Milwaukee "Small" M-18 Blower was included in a multi-tool set I bought years ago. Last year, I scored a killer deal on it's big brother (about $90 delivered vs the "usual" discounted price of $159). The "big brother" REALLY puts out air. It easily cleans off the tops of my RV slide outs from a distance of 5'+. For the RV clean out, I'll try the original "small" blower first.

Wait, don't you have asthma? is it really recommended to blow dust everywhere when someone has asthma?

I used one to clean out a used clothes dryer. It worked pretty good.
