Cleaning Your Blinds

If you want to know how to clean your blinds safely then you might find this article extremely useful. At some point in time, all of us have come across blinds at the local home improvement centre. They look really nice sitting there, although no one wants to spend a few days removing the dust from them. Regardless of what you may hear or think, it doesn’t always have to be this way. Cleaning your blinds is easy.

Close The Slats Prior To Dusting

It will probably seem obvious, but you should close the slats prior to dusting. Weekly blind dusting is the best way to go, using a lamb’s wool duster, as lamb’s wool will naturally attract dust and can help prevent buildup as well.

If lamb’s wool isn’t available, a paintbrush may also do the trick to clean your blinds. Make sure you place some towels underneath the blinds to catch any excess dust. If you want to be thorough, you can also take the blinds down and clean them in your bathtub.

Removing Grease From The Blinds,

To remove the grease from the blinds, an all purpose cleaner can be used. Spray the blinds good, then let the cleaner work on them for a few minutes. Then, wipe the cleaner off with a soft cloth, although rinsing the cloth will make it even more effective. To clean the other side of the blinds, flip it over and do the same thing as mentioned above.

How To Clean Blinds With Cotton Gloves

This one is simple – simply use an old pair of cotton gloves to clean your blinds. Slip the gloves on, dip your fingers into a solution of 1 teaspoon ammonia and 1 quart water, then run your fingers through the mini blinds.

How To Clean Blinds With A Vacuum Cleaner

If you prefer, you can also use the vacuum cleaner hose attachments. You can even use the vacuum cleaner without having to remove the blinds. Putting a dryer sheet on the blinds will remove any static so that dust will no longer be attracted to the blinds.
