Simple Tip Tuesday {Part 7}

Cleaning my blinds is one of the last things I usually put on my to do list.
However, living in a deserty, dusty, windy area makes my  blinds extra dirty every time I want to open my windows for some fresh air.
So here is a simple way to clean blinds.
Mix equal parts vinegar and warm water in a bowl.


Slip an old odd sock on your hand and wipe all the grimy dirt away.
When your sock gets really dirty, rinse it in some clean water and repeat the cleaning process.


Happy Cleaning!!!

Thank you so much! I knew there had to be an easier way to do this.

I know this sounds like a silly question but, where does the vinegar and water mixture come into the process? Do you saturate/dampen the sock before wiping down the grimy dirt OR do you wipe off the grimy dirt, rinse the sock with clean water and then apply the vinegar/water mixture on as a "polishing" touch?

I put the water/vinegar solution on the sock and it cleaned the blinds quite quickly. Thanks for the tip!

I am definitely going to try this! The dirtiest part of my home is the blinds (of which there are MANY)and now you may have helped me solve that problem.
God bless!

If your blinds are really dirty, soak them in the tub with vinegar and dawn. Wipe with a rag and hang out to dry. Clean and smell fresh!

I put the vinegar and water in a spray bottle and spray the blind then wipe it down with the sock.

I have a ton of old socks I could use for cleaning! I never even thought about using them to clean my blinds. I also have some vinegar in my cupboard, so this should be an easy clean. Thank you for sharing!

Hi, did you try it on your wooden blinds and if so did it work out?

Brandee Dickson said...

I keep a bottle of 50 / 50 water / vinegar mixture and I use it to clean my mirrors, counters, and wood furniture. It cleans nicely.

What a great idea, I am so glad that I came across this post and the tip on how to clean your blinds. I always seem to forget to clean my blinds as well so I am glad that I am not the only one. I can't wait to try this and hopefully it works as well as I think it will. http://www.jostar.com/en/blinds.html
