Tools and Materials Before you start cleaning your fabric blinds, gather the necessary tools and materials. You'll need a microfiber cloth, a vacuum cleaner with an upholstery attachment, a fabric cleaning solution, warm water, a bucket, gloves, and a blow dryer (optional). When choosing a fabric cleaning solution, make sure to use a gentle product that won't damage the fabric.
Start by removing dust and debris from your fabric blinds with a vacuum cleaner. Use the upholstery attachment to gently suction the dust from the fabric.
Spot clean any stains or spots on the fabric with a fabric cleaning solution. Apply the solution to a microfiber cloth and gently dab the stained area until it lifts. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing the fabric to prevent damage.
For a deeper clean, mix warm water with a small amount of mild soap in a bucket. Dip a microfiber cloth into the soapy water and wring it out. Gently wipe down the fabric blinds, being careful not to saturate the fabric. Rinse the cloth in clean water and repeat the process until the blinds are clean.
Use a clean microfiber cloth to dry the fabric blinds. For faster drying, use a blow dryer on low heat to speed up the process. Be careful not to use high heat or get the fabric too wet.
To keep your fabric blinds clean and well-maintained between cleanings, follow these tips:
- Dust your fabric blinds regularly with a microfiber cloth to prevent build-up of dirt and dust.
- Spot clean any spills or stains immediately to prevent them from setting in.
- Avoid getting your fabric blinds wet or exposing them to moisture to prevent mold and mildew growth.
- Use a fabric protector spray to help repel dirt and stains.
