Using a blind duster on dirty blinds

If you’ve been avoiding the task of cleaning your blinds, I’m sharing 5 different ways you can clean them. Regardless of the type of blinds you have, there’s a tip that will be sure to suit your needs and get the job done.


1. Grab a sock and some vinegar.

By wearing a sock on your hand, you can easily grip each blind and clean the top and bottom simultaneously while spritzing with a vinegar and water solution.

2. Wipe your blinds with a dryer sheet to prevent dust.

Wipe down your blinds with a dryer sheet to both clean off dust and to provide a dust barrier.


3. Vacuum those fabric blinds.

This works especially well if you have fabric blinds. Just take the brush attachment on your blinds or a small handheld vacuum and vacuum away!

4. Use a blind duster to clean twice as fast.

With this handy tool, you’ll be able to kill two birds with one stone. The micro-fiber material will grip and clean the top and bottom of two blinds at the same time, which means you’ll get the job done twice as fast. 😉


5. Give super dirty blinds a bubble bath.

Yes, this technique is more extreme, but if your blinds need very deep cleaning, this is a great solution. Place them into the tub with some warm water, dish soap, swish them around, and wipe clean. For tough stains or grease, let them sit for about an hour. Make sure to let them dry before rehanging in your window.

Hip Tip: Most fabric blinds can also take baths, but often times will have to be taken apart and restrung once dry, so check with the manufacturer beforehand.
