If you have window blinds you know that they do a great job of keeping the sun out of a room and adding privacy but it’s hard to figure out how to clean window blinds. Dust and dirt left on blinds shows, but worse than that, it can add allergens to your home. A little time spent during spring cleaning is a great way to get in the habit of keeping them clean.


If you prefer a more ‘hands-on’ technique, use a microfiber cloth and barely dampen it. If your blinds are extra dusty or dirty, add a drop of rubbing alcohol or a drop of dish soap to help cut through the dust and grime.

Use a blind duster

These blind duster tools are great for quickly cleaning window blinds. The microfiber can be removed and laundered in between uses and it works great to trap dust from both sides of the blinds simultaneously. Bonus: you can clean two blind slats at once.

Vacuum Cleaner

If you have a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment and an extending hose, try using it to vacuum your blinds. This is my favorite technique because it’s quick and it does a great job of capturing any dust in a hurry.
