How to Clean Mini-Blinds With No Bathtub

Your bathtub is a handy means to include dust and totally immerse your mini-blinds, but you do not need to use the bathtub or even take the blinds down to clean them. Cleaning them in position means less hassle and struggle to remove the blinds assembly and hang it back up; it also means less prospect of bendingdamaging or tangling the pliers. While water may be employed on some type of blinds, elect for dry methods just when cleaning wood blinds to stop water damage.

Dry Cleaning for All Mini-Blind Materials

Close to the mini-blinds, so the back side faces in. Wipe the blinds with a static dustcloth or microfiber cloth, starting at the bottom, working your way up, to remove dust from the back of the pliers.

Open and re-close the dividers the contrary way so that the pliers point downward, with the bottom edge exposed and nearest to you. Wipe the blinds down once more with the dustcloth, beginning at the top. Wipe the windowsill too, as dust might have dropped onto it.

Vacuum the blinds, beginning at the top, with the upholstery brush attachment. Vacuum the corners of the window frame and regions above and beneath the blinds, employing the crevice tool attachment to enter hard-to-reach places.

Wet Cleaning for Plastic, Vinyl and Metal

Eliminate up to as you can with a dustcloth and vacuum cleaner with the upholstery brush attachment.

Fill a bucket halfway with room-temperature water. Add a spray or two of dish soap, swirling the water around with your hand along with a sponge. Fill another bucket with plain water.

Place old towels or thick layers of newspaper on the floor beneath the windows. Turn the slats shut so the back side faces in. Dip a sponge into the soapy water and then wash down the slats, starting at the bottom, after wringing the majority of the liquid out of the sponge. Wipe them down again with a fresh sponge dipped into the bucket containing fresh water. Dry with a soft cloth or towel.

Repeat Step 3, this time with all the dividers turned the contrary way, so the bottom edge of each slat is the edge nearest you.
