Cleaning and care for wooden and other window blinds
Use an ordinary soft, clean dust cloths, chemically treated dust
cloths, vacuum cleaner brush attachments, or other available
ordinary household aids.
To vacuum: use the brush dust head attachment and tilt the slats
first up, then down (but not entirely exposed) to reach the entire
top and bottom surfaces.
To dust: use a soft clean cloth or chemically treated dust cloth and
tilt the slats as above.
To wash: use a damp cloth or sponge and mild detergent. Use warm or
cold water - NOT hot water. Tilt the slats as above. Protect the
floor or sill from excess water. The blind can also be taken down,
placed in a bath tub of mild soapy water, then rinsed clean, wiped
dry, or allowed to dry completely in the open air.
Wood Blinds :
Care must be taken when cleaning real
wood blinds. Washing the blind
is NOT recommended. Although the wood is sealed, water or even
excessive dampness may cause warp age or discoloration of the slats.
Since the surface of the slats is smooth, dust may be easily brushed
off at regular intervals using a clean soft dust cloth or a vacuum
cleaner brush attachment. Clean them as described above.
