How to clean blinds | Day 27/30 of my Spring Cleaning Spree

In this article, we will guide you on how to clean blinds effectively as part of your spring cleaning routine. Blinds can accumulate dust and dirt over time, making them look dull and affecting the overall cleanliness of your home. By following these simple steps, you can restore the shine and cleanliness of your blinds.

Materials needed:

  • Duster or microfiber cloth
  • Vacuum cleaner with brush attachment
  • Mild detergent or cleaning solution
  • Bucket or container
  • Soft sponge or cloth
  • Towel or drying cloth

Step-by-step guide:

  1. Begin by dusting the blinds using a duster or microfiber cloth. Start from the top and move downwards, making sure to cover each slat.
  2. For blinds with heavy dust accumulation, use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to remove the dirt more effectively.
  3. If your blinds are made of fabric, check the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning. In most cases, you can simply spot clean with a mild detergent solution and a soft sponge or cloth.
  4. For blinds made of plastic or metal, you can mix a small amount of mild detergent or cleaning solution in a bucket of warm water.
  5. Dip a soft sponge or cloth into the cleaning solution and wring out any excess liquid. Gently wipe each slat of the blinds, starting from the top and working your way to the bottom.
  6. For stubborn stains or grime, you may need to apply a bit more pressure or use a toothbrush to scrub the affected areas.
  7. Once you have finished cleaning the blinds, rinse the sponge or cloth and wipe away any remaining cleaning solution.
  8. Allow the blinds to air dry or use a towel or drying cloth to speed up the drying process.

Conclusion

Cleaning blinds is an essential part of spring cleaning, and by following these simple steps, you can achieve a sparkling clean and dust-free result. Regular cleaning and maintenance of blinds not only improve the appearance of your home but also contribute to a healthier living environment.

    Do you have a video on how to clean those paper-like blinds? I think theyre called cellulose blinds. The house we bought has those, and the ones in the kitchen are greasy.

    I use plastic blind from nearly 3 decades ago and they are cemented in dust. As a result they have quite a few metallic and mechanical parts as well as them being in large excess of nearly 9 feet in length. I want to use the tub method but I’m worried about rust. Is there any other method I could try for cleaning?

    I had some blinds that were beyond scrubbing in a rental (roomate's room after he moved out–he smoked a ton of weed near them lol) I removed them, then I soaked them in sink with warm soapy water and ran it through the dishwasher. WAS BRAND NEW.

    Best way is to spray blinds with greased lightening. Let sit for 5 mins, then hit it with a steam cleaner. I’m fussy af, and it takes me 15 to do each blind.

    My slatted blinds are wood, so I can't soak them. It's infuriating!

    I love your three cloth method it’s the best ❤ thank you for posting. You unlocked a memory for me: I was cleaning blinds like these in our first house and it wasn’t going well. I was struggling and breaking the blinds or they just weren’t coming clean. I was doing it for two days (I was not as cleaning experienced). My hubs came out and said “you know those blinds are just $10 each we can get new ones” I almost cried 😂❤

    Oh my gosh…. this gives memories. Back in the late 80s I spent 2 weeks cleaning blinds in several houses. One person saw me out cleaning the blinds and hired me. I didn't clean blinds for 6 months after that. It was lucrative thought.

    I needed this! I always use 1 microfibre and have to rewash over and over and it tends to leave a wet dog smell on the counters.

    So I've always seen people talking about using dish soap without rinsing it off on a lot of things, I'm wondering, that doesn't cause any sticky residue? I use it on a lot of things (sooo great for showers) but I always rinse it. Also, I have a similar system to your three rag system! If the blinds are really bad, I'll vacuum it with the hose attachment, then a duster, cleaning solution, and dry rag to get any leftovers off. It works!

    If you have to get grease or nicotine off blinds, TSP is cheap and highly effective too

    I needed this! I always feel like I’m going to break them while cleaning them, so I just don’t do it or do it poorly. 😢 I’ll try this out instead
