Tip and Tricks: Cleaning Your Blinds

Tip and Tricks: Cleaning Your Blinds

Taking care of your blinds is essential to their longevity and the maintenance of their appearance. Blinds are an investment for the home, and must be cared for like you would your lawn or leather products.

Aluminium Plantation Shutters

Use a damp cloth to remove dust from blades. To buff the blades, use a small amount of cream cleanser such as Jif. If there are minor scratches from time or small children etc, use a very small amount of car polish to remove the scratch.

Cleaning Blinds

Timber Plantation Shutters and Venetians

Use a dry cloth to remove dust from timber products. If the product is painted or thermopoly, use a damp cloth or a very mild detergent.

Clean and Dirty Blinds

Fabric Blinds

Dust using the brush attachment for the vacuum cleaner and ensure this is done regularly to avoid a build-up of dust on the fabric. To remove small marks, use an art eraser very lightly or use baby wipes. Ensure your fabric blinds are kept insect free as they can cause more damage than you realise! If you notice small holes anywhere on the fabric, check for moths in your house as this is usually a sign of a moth infestation.


Blinds are generally low-maintenance but following these simple tips will ensure they stay looking new for as long as possible!
