31 percent of homeowners say “cleaning window blinds” is their least favorite household chore. Perhaps that’s because they haven’t seen how simple blind-cleaning can be.
In this 2-minute video from HowCast, you’ll learn the basics of blind-cleaning with nothing more than a dust cloth and towel, a sponge and all-purpose cleaner, and ordinary dryer sheets.
The steps are basic:
- Get the dust off with the dryer sheet
- Remove the blinds from the window
- Go outside, or find a bathtub
- Wash, rinse, and dry with the towel
- Re-attach the blinds
Cleaning window blinds is a monthly activity, but with regular dusting, you could push that schedule to quarterly, depending on your home’s airborne particles and overall cleanliness. The trick is that when you do wash your blinds, you wash them properly.
