Cleaning Your Blinds – Some Helpful Tips
Window blinds can easily collect a lot of dust if you don’t keep on top of their maintenance and upkeep. Usually, a quick swish with a damp sponge will be sufficient, but other times a year’s worth of dust will need to be removed efficiently and effectively. If you don’t keep on top of your blinds’ maintenance, dirt and debris will cake on and will become far harder to deal with.
Here are a few easy and inexpensive ways to keep the dust and debris away from your blinds and make it seem good as new.
Blinds Cleaning Tip #1 – Try that old feather duster
If there is a thin layer of dust on your blinds, one of the easiest methods is to run a feather duster between each slate, picking up the dust on both sides of the blind as you go along.
Blinds Cleaning Tip #2 – Use An Old Glove
For another easy way to reach the awkward places of the blind, an old glove or unused sock over your hand can make life so much easier. Just run your fingers along the insides and top of each slate. This is a simple, yet effective way to catch dust in those hard to reach places.
Blinds Cleaning Tip #3 – Vacuum Blinds
This might sound silly, but if you have the correct vacuum attachment for your vacuum cleaner, this is actually a great way to effectively and easily get all the dust on your blinds.
Use these tips to easily and effectively take care of the cleaning and upkeep of your home or office’s blinds.
