It’s easy to forget about cleaning your wood blinds, but regular care will maintain their beauty and make them last longer. This is not a major chore, and if you do it regularly, it won’t take you as long each time. What’s the best (and most efficient) way to clean wood blinds?
- Dusting. Wood blinds can be dusted with microfiber cloths or mitts and soft vacuum cleaner dust brush attachments. Do this dry run first because if you dampen dusty blinds, it can make the job harder. Work from top to bottom, so you won’t have to dust the slats twice. And remember to flip the slats, to get both sides.
- Cleaning Wood Blinds. After dusting, pour a little bit of white vinegar into a clean spray bottle and fill it with hot water. Spray it onto the blinds, getting into the narrow areas. If you see grease stains or other marks after cleaning, make a stronger vinegar mixture, apply it to the blinds, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Wipe off the spray with a clean microfiber cloth, and get into the edges with a Q-tip. Make sure that the wood blinds are completely cleaned and dried on both sides when finished.
- Wood Conditioner. Wood conditioner can make your wood blinds shine and look like new, but is not required. But if you want to show your blinds some TLC, this is one of the best ways to do it.
