Window blinds collect dust. Window blinds should be cleaned. Right? I don’t know about you but I have a tendency to put cleaning jobs like this very low on the priority list when I am crunched for time. Kitchen counters, bathrooms, vacuuming and dusting — oh yes, and laundry –these tasks are top listed. Blinds…low, low, low on the priority list.
So, years have gone by. Oh, I swiped the blinds occasionally with my feather duster but real cleaning? Years! And there’s a bridal shower coming up at my home. No time to buy and install new blinds (the windows in my dining-room are an unusual size) so, clean them I must!
How To Clean Vinyl Window Blinds
- Start at the top of the blinds, using your step stool to make it easier to reach.
- Work on sections of the blind at a time, spraying then wiping.
- Using a clean paper towel, wipe each sprayed slat of the blind, front and back, working section by section. You may have to rub it a bit to get all of the dirt.
- Be methodical and patient. The job will get done.
- In the future, dust and use the vacuum attachment to keep dust from becoming stuck-on dirt. You may not have to do this again, if you stay on top of it
