If you’re getting ready to sell your house, you’ll want to get everything in tip top clean shape which includes your window treatments. And, even if you’re not interested in selling - this is a great tip! I’m the first to admit that cleaning isn’t fun but it’s got to be done.

This tip to clean dirty blinds is really easy. You will need an old sock and equal parts of vinegar + water solution in a bowl. Slip the old sock on your hand, dip it into the vinegar and water mixture, and wipe down each individual slat on the blinds. Dip your hand (with the sock!) after every couple of slats, and squeeze it a bit to rinse off the dirt. It also helps to have a second old sock to dry all the slats once they have been cleaned. Some put the mixture in a container and spray it on the blinds and wipe it but be prepared to wash your windows then.


Keeping window blinds looking clean and beautiful is a task that requires regular attention for best results. A clean house is one that will sell better. If you need the name of a cleaner to come in and take care of this task (and any other cleaning jobs!) let me know and I’ll be happy to give you a few names of people that do good work. Happy cleaning!
