The Blinds

Today I am beginning to tackle my least favorite household chore. Cleaning the blinds. I think in the 2 1/2 years that we have lived here I have cleaned them, ummmmm, never. So needless to say I have got a big job ahead. Not really sure of the best way to do this. I have my Swiffer Duster and all that does is move the dust all around. I have tried using a damp paper towel and that seems to be working, but it is taking forever. If you have any tricks that seem to work for you, please let me know. Thanks.

When I clean my blinds I use the vacume, with the soft brush on the end, works wonders and goes very fast. I'm all about having it done fast!!!! Good Luck, and have fun!!!! Yea right.

It depends on how clean you want them. If you want them just dusted, you can vacuum or use a feather duster. However, if you want them all scrubbed (and if you have blinds in your kitchen you might need this) you can take them down and put them in the bathtub, or hose them off outside. That will be a messy job, but they,ll get really clean!!
