Tips To Easily Clean Your Shutters, Blinds and Shades

November 14, 2016

Since we’re all getting ready for the holidays, it’s tough to find the time to finish home projects we may have started throughout the year.

Here’s a quick way to brighten up your home for the holidays: clean those dusty blinds, shades or shutters. Your guests will notice that something is fresh and new in your home, and all you’ve done is a simple refresh.  That way next year you won’t have to devote several Saturdays to cleaning the house.

CLEAN YOUR SHUTTERS WITH EASE: Window shutters can be either decorative or functional, and often times are both. Whether they are Danmer Thermalite, Heritage Wood, Ultraluxe or Plantation Shutters, they’ve added beauty and character to any home. However, over time, your shutters will collect dust, and their beauty can easily be overlooked. Routine cleaning is not only recommended, it is absolutely necessary. The good news is that shutters, are relatively easy to maintain, and cleaning is a breeze. Use a soft cotton cloth and mild soap and water to wipe the louvers, and then dry immediately with a clean dry cloth. Do not use any harsh chemicals or ammonia based cleaners. Throughout the year, you can use a feather duster to keep them dust free in all seasons.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR SHADES: It’s important not to begin by spot cleaning your shades. Start by dusting the shades, instead of starting with the stains. Whether your shades are Honeycomb shades, Roman shades, Sheers and Shading, or Solar or Roller Shades begin your cleaning process by using your vacuum’s suction hose with the soft brush attachment. Work your way from side to side all the way down the shade, and see the dust disappear.

 HOW TO CLEAN YOUR BLINDS: Regular cleaning will keep your Wooden Blinds, Skyline Panels, Solid & Stained Wood Blinds, Faux Wood Blinds and Vertical Blinds looking and working like new.

Your grandmother probably used this trick for cleaning blinds:

  • Fill a small bowl with white vinegar and find a pair of clean cotton gloves or socks
  • Put your hand inside one of the gloves or socks and dip the tip of the sock, or your fingers into the bowl
  • Run your hand or fingers along each slat to remove the dust and grime. You may need to rinse the sock or glove a few times
  • Switch back and forth between the two socks or gloves, soaking one sock or glove while you use the other

Important: Although this method is safe for most materials, do not oversaturate the blinds, especially if they are wooden. Water warps wood, so squeeze as much out as possible and dry immediately. Avoid letting the vinegar come into contact with your eyes or skin.
