When it's time to do the window cleaning, of course you'll want to handle the window treatments as well. Blinds made of fabric can present a challenge, however. To remove dust and cobwebs from your window treatments consider this window cleaning tip: Use the hose attachment on your vacuum to remove all traces of dust and dirt. If you need to take the shades down for an extra cleaning, always follow the manufacturer's care instructions. In the shades can be washed by hand, you'll only need these window cleaning supplies: mild dishwashing liquid and warm water. Wash the shades in warm soapy water, and hang to dry. Rather than wringing the water out, roll them up in a towel -- squeezing as you go -- to remove excess water before hanging outside to dry.
