All you have to do is take an old, empty (and easily washable) pillowcase and slip it over your fan blade. Then, using your hands, remove the pillowcase so it picks up the dust as you go. If you have to go back a second time to get the edges, just put the case back on and run your hands along the sides to pull it off a second time. When you’re done, all dust and debris will be trapped in the case. Take it out, shake it out, then put it in the wash.
