Over the years, one of the most frequent questions we have been asked here at Right Price Blinds is ‘What’s the best way to clean blinds?’
We’d love to tell you there’s some magic formula, but unfortunately a little elbow grease is required. Hopefully, our tips will ease the pain slightly though and help keep your windows looking great!
The best way to clean rollers is with a soft brush head on your hoover. Gently give them a hoover down. Use a well wrung out cloth or sponge, dipped in a mild detergent, to gently wipe down the fabric and remove any stains. If blinds are especially grubby, take them down and soak them in a bath with lukewarm water and a mild detergent. Dry blinds fully before re-rolling.
Gently dust slats with a soft dusting cloth or glove, tilting the slats in alternative directions as you go. If blinds are especially dirty, use a well rung out microfibre cloth and warm water to wipe down the slats. Open them out and allow to dry.
Treat in much the same way as roller blinds – gentle hoover and a well wrung out cloth if especially dirty. Most vertical blinds can also be removed from the track – altogether or individually – and soaked in a bath if heavily stained. Allow to fully dry before closing.
Roman blinds can also be gently dusted using a hoover on a very low speed, or a hand held vacuum. Small stains can be tackled using a well wrung out cloth or sponge, using a mild detergent and lukewarm water. If the blinds are very dirty, dry cleaning might be the best option.
Give your blinds a good clean two to three times a year to keep them looking fresh.
Hope these tips help!
