We have two 12 inch Mini Desk fans.. One is on the floor soothes me to sleep at night and stirs the air without blowing directly on me which causes dry eyes and aching bones. The other moves where and when needed.
The greasy dust stopped them blowing air... I tried blowing it off with expensive canned air, but all that did was waste air.
I decided to take them apart and clean them.. HA... the 4 screws are almost as small as my eye glasses screws. so tiny it requires a magnet and a teeny tiny screw driver.
I NEVER touch bob's tools !!
A. because that is NOT allowed
B. I OFTEN break HIS rules, but I can't find the one I want because I don't KNOW the one it needs.
C. anything tiny makes me CRAZY!
.. I requested he remove the screws and then I would clean them and he could put the screws back.
(yes, there was a method to my madness)
Voila! without me touching a single tool or fan they soon appeared like new.
Positive Wind Tunnels now and so quiet due to a few drops of oil in the right place.
My Plan did require me to enter the kitchen when I heard HBO words floating down the hall....
I sweetly asked.... "did you lose a screw"? NO! I can't find the HBO word Screw Driver. It was right here.... I calmly walked to the other side of the table to view from a different perspective while he was in the garage (insert HBO HERE) thinking he took it back out in the workshop. There it was, inside the fan, upside down..... Life Is So fun... I opened the door and said I FOUND IT....I DID MY PART... or the screws would still be on the table and not in the fan. Did you notice I am sweet and calm? HA HA HA HA
