8. How to Clean Dirty Blinds

From Keep Home Simple

Blinds are one part of my house that I can never seem to get truly clean, so I was so happy to find this post.

This brilliant home owner used a chemical free cleaner made with water and vinegar, and then slipped a sock over her hand to get into all the nooks of her window blinds.

It’s also helpful to have a second dry sock on hand so that once all of the slats have been cleaned you can dry them off too!
