I love the look and function of blinds in a room, but I’m at my wits end as to how best to clean them.
When we moved into our house (our first and only house so far) we decided to use curtains on the main floor and and a combination of blinds and sheer curtains or roller blinds in the upstairs bedrooms.
Curtains are easy to clean – just throw them in the wash or take them to the dry cleaner depending upon what materials they’re made of, but blinds are another story.
We have mini-blinds in our master bedroom and I’ve taken to wiping them down with a damp rag and dusting them with my big duster whenever I’m cleaning. This works, but not as well as I’d like or perhaps I’m just not doing it as often as I should.
The roller blinds in the two spare bedrooms we have get vacuumed or dusted. I’d love to wash them since they are made of material, but due to their construction that’s pretty much impossible.
Any good tips on cleaning mini blinds and roller blinds?
