Cleaning the Blinds

I am no expert on cleaning – and I avoid cleaning the blinds.  I hate it!  It takes forever and they are never really clean.

Isn’t that gross!  These are the blinds on the patio door in our master bedroom.

Yuck! The blinds in our room get really dirty really fast.  We have 3 dirty dogs that sleep in our room, so I blame the nastiness on them.

I started by vacuuming each of the slats on the blinds.

That took the bulk of the dust off but there were still spots all over.

I sprayed window cleaner

Then wiped off each slat.

Look how clean they are!

Here is a better picture – it is pretty hard to take pictures of blinds.  Our blinds look new!  I think this is the cleanest they have ever been!

Now, this still took 20 minutes but I feel like they are really clean now. 

What is your secret to clean blinds?
