The heating grate in our bathroom is the kind that leans against a
wall, the base of it lays against white ceramic tile and is about 2"
away from the wall. It's permanently attached there, it's not screwed
in. There's a ton of dust inside of it, showing through the wide
slits in the grate, and really noticeable against the white floor.
How do I clean this dust out? The edging tool on my vacuum is too
wide to fit through the slits on the grate. A drinking straw fits
through the grates, but my vacuum is pretty powerful, sucks it up
through the hose. Does anybody have any ideas how to clean this out?
So, the problem is actually fastening the drinking straw so it doesn't
get sucked into the vac hose? Okay. Gorilla Tape is the solution.
Stick the straw into the crevice tool and Gorilla Tape it in place. If
you need a heavier tube, consider a piece of plastic or even copper
tubing. Of course, you'll want the end of the crevice tool completely
sealed. That ought to work.
Whatever it takes.
