ROUTINE cleaning and maintenance of the home usually involves dusting the window blinds.

Over time, it becomes difficult to remove all of the dirt and so at some point the blinds will need to be washed.

Use a ladder or step stool to reach the top of the blind.

Making sure the blind is extended and slats are open, carefully remove it from the brackets. Put any removed hardware in a secure place.

Fill the bathtub with warm water, add a small amount of liquid soap, and leave them to soak.

Using a soft brush, scrub several blind slats at a time. Then, pull the blind up and down in the bathtub several times to release soap and dirt left behind.

Finally, rinse with water from the shower head and hang it over the shower curtain rod to dry.
