Wooden Blinds

Hello cleaning gurus!

I've tried dusting my wooden blinds with both the vacuum attachment and a microfiber cloth. They are not coming clean! What do you all use for this task?

RE: Wooden Blinds

I vacuum first or dust with a dry microfiber cloth, then wipe them with a damp microfiber cloth and dry them with another dry microfiber cloth. By vacuuming or dusting first, it helps remove most of the dust. The damp cloth removes the rest. If need be, you could add vinegar and a drop of dishwashing liquid to the water you dampen the microfiber cloth with. It's not usually necessary for me except in the kitchen where things tend to be a little "stickier."

Thanks, Julie,

I actually thought of the dampened microfiber, but didn't think of drying them off, after. Duh!!
