Dusty ceiling fan 12 feet up

I have a ceiling fan 12 feet high and I have no idea how to get to it.  I live in an apartment and dusting isn't exactly a maintance problem for them.  I cant afford a 12 foot latter, any suggestions?

Hmm...my first thought would be to get a swiffer...the one with the adjustable handle. Maybe put a cleaning cloth on it, and use it. I'm not sure it would work, but that's what I would try.

I was thinking the same thing.  Use a swiffer and get one of those long handles like you use for paint rollers on ceilings.

They sell a tool for that at Home Depot and lowes, it's like a giant curved pipe cleaner

Norwex sells a telescopic mop that has an attachment for dusting.  Its fantastic.  Its called the Envirowand.

I use a long mop. With a rectangle head and instead of putting the sponge on I use two old socks. Put on either side. Soak it in detergent,  And use. My friend made a longer mop, by tapping a long stick onto an mop. With duct tape. Go duct tape.

When you are poor it can fix almost anything.
