Regular dusting with a microfiber duster, feather duster, or soft cloth is a benefit to all blinds. For heavier dust, use the small brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner to go over the blinds, working in the direction of the slats. Blinds will need a more thorough cleaning once or twice a year. Take a microfiber cloth, terry towel, clean sock or cotton gloves and gently rub each slat from end to end, making sure to clean top and bottom.
