How To Clean Your Blinds Without Taking Them Off The Wall
I honestly don’t mind cleaning. But when it comes to that big spring clean of our house, I don’t love doing those once- or twice-a-year, super tedious chores. An example? Why, cleaning our window blinds, of course!
If you’ve gotten up close and personal with your blinds lately, you may have noticed that they’re covered in dust. Not only is dust unsightly, but it can lead to pesky dust mites (which can really irritate people with allergies). Thankfully, there’s a fairly simple way to clean your blinds that won’t break your back, take too long, or require you to remove them from the wall.
Clean My Space reveals that these simple tips will work on both horizontal and vertical blinds (just not on fabric ones). Start out by dusting your blinds. You can put an old sock on your hand and use that to dust, or simply use a microfiber cloth. You could also use a handheld vacuum or a special duster made for blinds.
Once your blinds have been dusted, fill a bowl or bucket with warm water and a few drops of liquid dish soap. Submerge a clean microfiber cloth in the solution, wring it out, and use this cloth to clean your blinds one at a time. You should keep dunking and wringing out your cloth in the soapy solution as you go.
And that’s it! Not too tedious, right? To see these simple yet effective tips in action, check out the video below.
