Many people find their window blinds extremely difficult to clean but it shouldn't be that hard if you know what you're doing. First of all, how you clean the blinds depends on exactly what kind cleaning you wish to do. For:
I find it is easier to hang the blinds on 2 nails and spray with cleanser and water hose. Scrub with a bath puff to get in all the little spaces. Rinse and let dry before re-hanging.
u should dry them before hanging with a soft terry cloth towel or such..to avoid smearing when drying espesially on mini blinds in various colors
I remember my aunt doing this in the 50's. I thought that there would be an easier way,guess not, thanks.
I have found that using a generously damp cotton rag with a solution of water and all purpose cleaner ie. 409 is a lot easier and less time consuming than removing the blinds. hold the towel between fingers and simply slide down each individual blind. Works great and takes 1/2 the time.
I wash my blinds in the bathtub. I spray them with cleaner, wash with a sponge and use the shower to rinse them,then wipe with paper towels and rehang.
Maybe it would just be easier to replace them! ;) I must say, I have tried this and it does work.
