  • If you have more time, remove the blinds from the window and take the moutside. Spread them across the table or an a blanket front-side up.
  • Using a bucket of warm, soapy water and an anti-static cleaning cloth, wipe each individual blind from frontĀ  to back.
  • For blinds that are extremely dirty, use a commercial blind cleaning solution and a soft-sided sponge to clean and scrub each panel.
