Are you looking for information about cleaning vertical blinds at home but do not know where to start? Perhaps your blinds don’t look as good as when you first bought them and have grown dull and dirty? In any case, keeping your vertical blinds clean is not as difficult as you might think and is something that anyone can do with little or no expense.
In this post, we will show you how to clean the parts of vertical blinds in just a few simple steps. Doing so is important if you intend to make good use of your blinds for many years to come.
Take the vertical blinds down from the windows. Make sure to do it gently to avoid damaging the blades. Avoid exerting undue pressure and carefully lift the top of the blades while unhooking them from the frame. Fold the blades in half but do not press as to avoid creating creases in the material.
Fill your tub with water (about half-full) and pour in about 1/4 cup of gentle cleaning detergent. If your vertical blinds are filthy, you can add some carpet cleaning solution. Stir the solution vigorously and wait a few minutes before proceeding to the next step.
Put the blinds in the tub and leave it to soak for at least 45 minutes to dissolve dirt build-up. Notice how the colour of the water changes indicating just how dirty the blinds were before cleaning. If you still see a few dirty spots, brush gently taking care not to damage the blind.
Drain all the water in the tub and fill it again to give the vertical blinds a thorough rinsing. You can then lift blades out of the tub and drain all the excess water before reinstalling the blades. Wipe the blinds clean with a dry towel, and you are all set!
