Follow these quick 4 steps on how to Clean Blinds, Shades, Shutters and Curtains? 

1). General Cleaning Tip for Blinds, Shades, Shutters and Curtains

While spring cleaning only comes once a year, to maintain the beauty of your window treatments for years to come you should dust and vacuum periodically. Adding an extra step to your cleaning routine can preserve your window treatments and avoid irreversible damage to the fabric or material.

2) Cleaning Tips for Blinds

Horizontal Metal, Wood and Faux Wood Blinds should be cleaned with a wood dust spray like,  Pledge® Dust & Allergen furniture spray and wiped dry. To finish off, rub blinds with a dryer sheet to slow down dust collection.

3) Cleaning Tips for Shades, Honeycomb and Vertical Blinds

If you are looking to clean Honeycomb Shades, Flexcell Honeycomb Blinds, Horizontal Sheer Shades and Vertical Blinds use a hair dryer on cool or warm temperature to blow dust out of the channels. For  Vertical Blinds, wash vertical fabric casing on Sheer Vertical Blinds in the washing machine on the gentle cycle and immediately re-hand on the window treatment with a towel beneath. Warning, do not let vertical case sit in washing machine to wrinkle and do not put case in dryer, the heat will destroy the case. Clean the fabric of these window treatments with a damp cloth and mild detergent and leave to air dry.

4)  Cleaning Tips for Curtains and Drapes:

3 Day Blinds recommends taking your Curtains and Drapes to the dry cleaners to ensure the different fabrics are treated as needed. Keep in mind that frequent dusting and occasional vacuuming is a great way to keep your curtains clean year round.

5) Cleaning Tips for Shutters

Shutters are actually one of the easiest window treatments to clean and maintain. In addition to dusting every few weeks, the best way to clean Shutters is with your wood cleaning spray and a soft cloth.
