Anything that can be applied to household fan to keep it from gathering dust on the blades???????

And  on the fins? 

I'm thinking a spray wax, but probably need something that doesn't cause a static charge to the blades. Anyone know of a product?

I have put a cleaner I use on my motorcycles on one fan. I thought I had a can of "Pledge" somewhere, but it might be in the truck. Used to use Lemon Pledge on the bikes before finding the Honda stuff. I was going to use it on a matching fan and see which one worked better. 

Does Endust actually "Repel" dust? I have never used the product. I might pick up a can today  and try it on the other fan.

I'm not so sure Endust actually repels dust as much as it makes surfaces harder to hold dust . 

Fabric softener seems to repel dust . Wipe with sheets or spray with one part liquid softener and four parts water , according to a Google search .

Thanks. Was at the store, but forgot to look for "Endust". Have some fabric softener sheets so will try that as the second tester.

Let us know how it turns out . Pretty sure every rig has at least one fan that could benefit from no or less dust .

I have to clean our fans ( 4 ) once or twice a year , depending on where we travel . 

I could do it more often , but , I'm way too busy with doing nothing , so ... ;)

Endust does NOT repel dust and in fact it says in its ads that that it collects and holds dust.

Makes sense.... Endust leaves a nice shine on furniture but it has an oily component & I would think it would attract dust.

Glad I forgot to look for it. It's been cool here in NE Oklahoma so the fans are not yet getting much action. I did use the one with the motorcycle polish on it for a couple hours. Will try to do the same in the same place with the other one.  Plan to set them side by side. One blowing east and the other west or North/South as the case may be.
