Spring Clean Your Blinds!

With these strange times we now find ourselves in and so many people staying safely at home, it’s a great opportunity to do some spring cleaning! And, where better to start than with your blinds!

At Right Price Blinds, it’s a common question we’re asked – just what is the best way to keep those blinds fresh and clean?

Here are our top 5 tips for cleaning your blinds;

  • Firstly – Clear the area around your window sill and open your blind down fully
  • Vacuum – If your vacuum cleaner has a dust attachment start off by using this to remove as much dust and dirt as possible. Vacuum from top to bottom on both sides of the fabric.
  • Damp clean –Never try to wash fabric blinds because it might cause their dye to run. Instead, after spot testing for colorfastness, use a damp (not wet) microfibre cloth to wipe away heavier dirt.
  • Stubborn Stain Removal – If you cannot remove a stain with water alone, try using a fabric stain removal product. Simply treat the stained area following the manufacturer’s instructions. Warning! While this is an effective cleaning method there is a possibility that the treated area of the blind may look lighter than the rest of the blind, depending on the colour/texture of the fabric.
  • Finally – Give your blinds a quick dust down as part of your regular cleaning routine and they should only require a deeper clean once or twice a year.

Keep in mind that most of our materials come in a washable option, which is often a good choice for rooms where they are likely to get more wear and tear, such as the kitchen/bathroom. Going with timber/aluminium Venetian blinds is another good option in these rooms.
