Cleaning Duette Shades

dwattersAugust 8, 2009

I've had Duette shades for almost 10 years and have been vaccuming to keep them clean. They were hanging in my kitchen and finally had to be tossed or physically cleaned. I searched the GardenWeb and found several cleaning tips. With nothing to lose, I finally bit the bullet and stuck them in the tub w/ warm soapy water, soaked for about 20 minutes, swished them around a bit, rinsed w/ cold water and layed them on a clean sheet outside in the sun. They look brand NEW!!!! Thank you to all who wrote in back in February '09.

Well, thank you for filling us in on how it went. I have them in my bath and do vacuum, but I'll remember what to do if they get really bad. Whan kind of soap did you use?
