I just noticed while i was cleaning how much dust had gathered up while behind my radiator but there's no way i can behind there with my hands, any tips on how i can clean it?

I just did this a month ago. I brought a radiator brush from Lakeland. Did the whole house. Couldn't believe the dust and crisp that came out. I layed newspapers underneath also the wiped over rads with zoflora. Good job worth doing especially at the beginning of winter. It got rid of that stale dusty smell you get when u first put the heating on

I agree with the above users you need a radiator brush to get behind the radiator and then give it a good clean with the bristles.

I used an air pump - the sort you blow up inflatables with. Very effective but spectacular messy.

Hairdryer at the top blowing down and Hoover at the bottom pointing up.

radiator brush, try poundshops or similar if they are selling anything other than sparkly tat.

Lakeland usually about seven times the price of anywhere else.
