Caring For Your Blinds
Venetian blinds, both the wooden and the fauxwood types, can help to create a great ambience to a room - but they are also notorious for gathering dust and dirt.
How To Clean Venetian Blinds | Wooden Blinds
BeingÂ a natural material, wood can warp if it gets wet, so itâ€™s best to use a clean, dry and lint-free cloth to get rid of any dust. There are some purpose build tools for the job, but you can also recycle one of those old, mis-matched socks you may have left around; just wear it over your hand allowing you to envelope both sides of the slat.
A slightly damp cloth is a useful tool for removing any stains, but make sure itâ€™s only in concentrated areas. As with water, some detergents may make the wood warp, so itâ€™s best to avoid these. Finally, don't forget about the edges of each slat â€“ you donâ€™t want to get these areas wet either.
How To CleanÂ Venetian Blinds | Fauxwood Blinds
Much of the same prinicples for cleaning wooden Venetian blinds apply to fauxwood blinds but of course asÂ theyâ€™re made to withstand damp and steamy conditions in kitchens and bathrooms, then a little water on your cloth wonâ€™t do any harm.
