You may also choose to vacuum your blinds. After dusting them, you have to wash them. Be careful not to use a lot of soap. Three drops of dish washing liquid in a bucket of warm water will do. Keep on rinsing the cloth as you go along. The cloth can get really dirty.

So, vacuum them regularly and wash them with a sponge and warm soapy water. If you have roller blinds, remember to roll them all the way down. Vacuum them, then wash them. Fabric blinds need sufficient time to dry. Roller blinds can be kept in rolled-down position for 2 days or so.
