How do I clean dust bunnies off a popcorn ceiling?

My kitchen has a popcorn ceiling and it collects dust bunnies that are hard to remove without a big mess. I feel this is because of the grease factor in a kitchen.

    Without scrubbing with a bristled brush, I don't see how you'll deal with this issue to any degree of satisfaction. I'd look to remove the popcorn sealing and refinish with a flat surface, painted with a good grade of kitchen paint.

    Your grease factor could be reduced with judicious use of a high grade exhaust fan, used every time you are baking/cooking, and regular cleaning of the fan's filters.

    Agree with Olivia. Popcorn ceilings should be outlawed. Seriously look at removing it.

    Reverse wrap some wide packing tape or duck (duct) tape on a paint roller and roll it on the ceiling. Change the tape when it stops being sticky.

    Blow dryer on high then a good microfiber duster.

      Understand that. Ive done one room a year. 😩. It’s horrible but only half the house had it so it needed something.
