How to Clean the Strings on Window Blinds

Debbie asked: How do I clean the strings on my kitchen horizontal blinds? The strings are dirty.

With so much use, it’s no surprise that the strings on your mini blinds may show more dirt than the blinds themselves. This solution for restoring the white strings on blinds to their original bright coloring is surprisingly simple!

You Will Need:

  • Clean rag
  • White liquid shoe polish

Steps to Clean the Strings:

  1. Pour a small amount of white shoe polish on the rag.
  2. Wipe the strings with the polish-coated rag until clean.
  3. Allow the strings to dry.

Additional Tips and Advice

  • Another alternative is to wipe the strings with shaving cream. This works for strings that are not white or those which do not have compatible shoe polish colors.
