How do you clean a blown in textured ceiling? I do the broom thing and it all crackles off and falls....I have little dust balls attaching thems selves to the rocky texture

    I have the same problem, but the dustbroom seems to work for me. Maybe a softer broom? Or have you tried vacuuming the dust off the ceiling?

  • A feather duster works well for this. Brooms are to stiff and will brush the popcorn down. But feather duster works well.

    What about those swiffer things you see on TV? I have one but never used it for that. Years ago I bought a large wand with an area about 10" long that had long soft hair like bristles on it (pink, white and yellow). With the 10" handle, I could wipe down the molding at the ceiling. Love it! The are cheap, come in various colors and hurt noting.

    A vaccum hose with an extension and a brush attachment works well.
