Anyone who has fabric blinds knows that even with regular cleaning, these can become dirty. Dust or dirt can accumulate in folds or an accidental spill can leave a mark. These blinds cannot be washed in a washing machine and they are often too expensive to throw away and replace. Fortunately, they are simple to clean and the process does not require special equipment.
You will need:
Step 1: Use the vacuum cleaner and brush attachment to remove all loose dirt from the blinds. If this is not available, use a microfiber cloth. Wipe down the blinds with the cloth or gently vacuum them. Though you may be able to remove the fabric area of each bind, it is not recommended. Getting the least amount of water and soap on the blind as possible during cleaning should be the goal.
Step 2: Put a small amount of dish soap into the bucket. Fill the bucket with warm water.
Step 3: Dip the sponge into the water and wring it so there is no dripping water. If there is concern that the blind will be damaged by the soap, test the sponge in an inconspicuous area. If all appears ok, lightly wipe any spotted areas on the blinds. Use the towel to immediately soak up excess moisture from the blinds. Repeat this process until the stain has been removed.
Step 4: Allow the blinds to dry. It should not take them long because the towel should have absorbed most of the moisture.
Step 5: Maintain the cleanliness of the blinds by regularly vacuuming them with the brush attachment. For a quick cleaning, use the microfiber cloth. Once a stain occurs, address it immediately, rather than waiting for it to dry.
