Get a long handled feather duster, and that will work well.

I believe the easiest way is with a Microfiber Ceiling Fan Duster. These can be found in many Wal-Mart type stores, Ace Hardware, etc) and cost about $12 to 20 dollars with an extension pole. You can buy in the store or on-line. The duster is shaped so that you can slip it over the blade (start at point closest to the motor) and move along blade outward.

There are several types of these but you will need an extension pole unless you want to use a ladder.
If using a ladder to hand clean, try to use some "dust" product (like Endust) so the dust particles will not go all over the room.
However you decide to do this, I would suggest turning off the switch and placing a piece of tape over the switch plate so fan or light cannot accidentally be turned on. You may also want to consider wearing a mask, especially if you have any allergies.

here is a link that has some suggestions.

If you want to avoid climbing a ladder - I would purchase an extendable ceiling fan cleaning tool with a microfiber cloth. They are sold at Home Depot or Walmart.

Dollar General has a feather duster that you can change the angle of. It works wonderful for ceiling fans.

You can buy new feather covers for it, or do like I did and make washable ones out of a washcloth.

I use one of those telescoping fuzzy type mops (can't think what they're called!), but they're perfect for dusting fans and hard to reach places. Most dollar stores and Walmart carry them.
