My kitchen and bedroom blinds are f.i.l.t.h.y. I need to do something about it. Preferably before the daily temperature outside reach 100+ degrees every day.
At least I am blessed to have had the previous owners of the house leave us wide, sturdy plastic blinds that you pull the cord to open and close, not the skinny, flimsy ones with the turning rod (although we have those elsewhere in the house).
Does anyone have any tips or tricks to getting these cleaned quickly and thoroughly? I have heard that you can just take them down, lay them on your driveway, and use the hose, some dish soap, and old rags to scrub off the thick dust and tiny bits of macaroni and cheese (did I just type that? How embarrassing) before letting the blinds dry in the sun.
Is that really the best way to go about this?
Ideas are appreciated!
