    What's the easiest way to clean ceilings without having to climb up and down a ladder?

    Did'ja ever see drywall finishers who do seam work in rooms with high ceilings?  They learn to work (stand) on stilts.....

      P.S.  WHY would anyone ever be cleaning a ceiling????  After all, if there WERE some dirt or dust to land/collect there, it would have to defy gravity!!!!  I've never cleaned mine, and it looks OK..... PPS:  Maybe people in Australia have to do this?

      Spiders can leave many a cob webs that collect flying dust and not to even mention cigarette smoke that does rise!  Hmmm...stilts, wonder if insurance covers that?

    Use a clean dust mop or sponge mop!  You will still get sore in your neck looking up all the time, but the long handles help you reach and save those knees on the ladder or risk of falling.  If you have spackle ceilings then you may want to simple vacumn lightly, so not to knock off the spackle bumps!

    A vacuum cleaner with long wand. I also have a long handled duster - kind of like a toilet brush, bristle wise. We have 20 ft ceilings. Also, eliminate things in your home causing the ceiling dirt - reduce dust with filters or a damp cloth, make everyone smoke outside and spread a ring of diatomaceous earth around the house to eliminate bugs and spiders.

    a mop, a raincoat, and goggles. Be sure to use a sponge mop, otherwise you'd need an umbrella

    I think long handled duster is perfect, especially when supplied with wet garment to make the dust stick.
