Dirty Blinds?! Piece of Cake! Like most of us we dread cleaning all of those slats and strings. Not to mention a whole backside to address. No one wants to keep their blinds closed all year around with fear of this dust flying everywhere. Here are a few tips to show you how to make this a piece of cake.
Simply purchase a few microfiber clothes and lightly mist your clothe with an all purpose cleaner. You do not want your clothe to be saturated as this just smears and reapplies the dust and dirt back onto the blinds. That is why you want a few clean ones to do your blinds. Starting from the top with your hand slid into the rag you will swipe left to right on each slat until you get to the bottom. Then turn your blinds onto the backside and do them the same way. Now take a dry clothe and dry the slats top from bottom on both sides. Removing any excess dust and dirt. Tada! Your all done!
To avoid this from getting out of hand again, repeat this step once a week. It will become second nature and more of a preventative verses a full on deep blind cleaning each month.
Whatever you do, do not spray your all purpose directly on the blinds. This will make a streaky, muddy mess, not to mention dirty your windows. Also, make sure to not use dusters. Those nifty dusters will just knock the dust in the air now causing all of the blind dust to land on your furniture where as the microfiber rag will pull it away. Last but not least to save you some dusting time always start with the blinds first and work top to bottom in all you do bringing the dust down and not back in the air.
Now you are good to go! You will be enjoying high tea with natural light in no time! Enjoy!!
