Get out the Vacuum Every Week
It is essential to take consistent steps to keep your blinds sparkling. At least once a week you should lightly vacuum your shutters to remove excess dust and debris. This simple uptake measure will save you much time and energy in the future, letting you put in small amounts of effort at one time. Use the soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner’s hose for best results during this process.
Use a Damp Cloth to Wipe Them Over
After you have gone over your shutters with the vacuum, it is a wise idea to then wipe over them with a damp cloth. By using a cloth dampened simply by water, you will be able to have great success when wiping over your plantation shutters. This is also a perfect solution when you have to spot clean after observing grimy spots or marks. This shouldn’t be a particularly difficult task due to the design of these types of blinds. The slats are generally rather large and easy to tilt to be able to get in those hard to reach places.
Use Detergent for Stubborn Stains
For some stains, water simply is not enough. When your shutters have been tainted by foreign objects, such as grease from cooking or pasta sauce from messy eaters, it will be essential to use something a little more.
Firstly, do not use intense chemicals to clean your blinds as this can damage the material of the target, while also potentially making you or other people ill. For this job all you need is a bucket of hot water, a sponge and some regular dish washing detergent. Mix hot water and the detergent in a bucket and dip the sponge in the water, before wringing out the sponge. Then simply scrub the grimy or effected areas until you have a spotless finish. After this process is finished you should wipe over the area with a cloth dampened by water. This is done to ensure that there is no detergent left on your plantation or security shutters.
