How to Clean Window Blinds and Shades?
There are some people who love the task of enjoying cleaning window treatments. But you should always clean them in a proper way so that your window coverings last for a long time. Now how do you clean window blinds and shades? Below are the 3 types of cleaning procedures which you should know in detail:
If your window treatments hold dust, dirt, and stains from spills and splatters, and you don’t want to remove the shades from their position, then you can simply clean them by vacuuming or you can use some soapy water, cleaning solution, and a duster or sponge to clean them. Avoid using a chemical solution. After cleaning, wipe them with a damp cloth and let them dry for some time. Attach a soft brush to your vacuum cleaner for dusting which works well in the tricky parts of the window coverings. For example, roller shades are the popular choice and you can see them hang in many homes as they act as anti-allergic window treatments. These cleanable roller shades require occasional cleaning to last longer. But again, when it comes to cellular honeycomb shades, they trap more dirt in their cell pockets. So you have to clean them on a regular basis and that can be done using a vacuum cleaner.
If your window coverings are too dirty and you are not able to clean them properly, then you can remove them from the windows. Then remove the dirt using a brush and wash them with soapy water. Make sure that you let them dry for some time to get the look as it was before.
For example, horizontal window blinds require more cleaning than other window coverings. If the slats hold more dirt, this means you can remove the slats from their position and can clean them using a cleaning solution. Even draperies can be washed easily to remove dirt or dust. You can go for spot cleaning as well and in that case, use lukewarm water and a mild detergent.
