1. How to clean wood blinds:

 Soak them.

Now this is a method I never actually tried myself, but if you have aluminum blinds, plastic or faux wood blinds, this may be the best option for you. The Thrifty Couple suggests you can soak them completely in the tub.

Fill your tub with several inches of plain water and fully immerse your blinds in the water. I have heard of some people adding just a drop of two of Dawn to the water, but you can try without soap, too.

You can use a soft cloth to rub down both sides of your vertical blinds. Drain the water and refill the tub with clean water to rinse the dirt (and possibly soap) off of the blinds.

Let them air dry outside and then rehang. Once you learn how to clean blinds in bathtub, it so easy!

3. Be a puppet master and start cleaning blinds with vinegar.

Sometimes, the best way to clean blinds is to get your hands dirty. Keep Home Simple suggests making a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and water.

Slip your hand into an old clean sock and dip it into your water/vinegar mixture. Simply rub your hand all along each slat of your blinds.

Every few slats, re-dip your socked hand into the cleaning mixture. I have also heard it is helpful to have a second dry sock on your other hand to dry the cleaned slats as you go.

If you don’t have a spatula to spare, or you want to be able to scrub those blinds a little more, try this technique suggested by Bubbly Nature Creations.

    1. Brenda – I would try using just distilled vinegar only. I wouldn’t dilute it with water. If that doesn’t work, you might add baking soda and vinegar to see if that gets it out. Thank you.
