  • You're supposed to clean them?

    Kidding. :) I vacuum mine occasionally (just run the attachment up and down) and when that doesn't get it all, I run a rag over each slat with a rag wet with water.

  • I also vacuum mine at least once a week and once a month, or as needed, I wash them with a mixture of white vinegar & water; just spray on and wipe off. I have wooden blinds so can't soak them in the tub with the vinegar like I used to do our old plastic ones, but that is an option if you have plastic blinds.

  • I've never actually cleaned mine. I've heard of the bathtub washing thing, or taking them outside and hosing them down. But, when I've finally gotten around to cleaning mine it was usually when company was coming and I didn't have time. So I ran downtown to Big Lots and bought new ones for $3.50 each. ( I did keep the old ones to clean for later...)

  • I use Clorox wipes they work wonders. It is a pain to clean each one but its worth it.
