How to keep your window treatments looking clean and new!
Jul 17th, 2014 by framecreations

Ever wonder how to keep your window treatments clean and looking new? We have the perfect tips to help you out!

It doesn’t take much to keep up with your window treatments, in fact, to keep your window decor looking beautiful, it is as simple as periodically dusting with a feather duster or vacuuming them with an upholstery attachment. In the case of a small stain or spot, easily just wipe the window treatment clean with warm water and a mild dish soap. 

As there are many different types of window treatments available, each have their own tailored cleaning procedure for best results. According to one of our top leading brands Graber, the best instructions for each type of window treatment is as follows:

Clean WT

Vertical Blinds—Vinyl Louvers:

  • Vinyl louvers may be removed and immersed in water for cleaning.  To eliminate static electricity, coat the louvers with a thin layer of mild detergent.

Vertical Blinds—Fabric Louvers:

  • These should not be immersed in water or dry cleaned.

Vertical Blinds Sheer:

  • Sheer fabrics are steam pressed during the manufacturing process, but may need to be re-steamed at a low temperature before hanging.
  • Be careful not to iron out the permanent pleats. Also make sure to remove the fabric from the louvers before steaming.
  • Sheer fabrics are machine washable. Use the gentle cycle with warm water and a mild detergent. (For best results, avoid chlorine bleach.) Hang damp fabric on the louvers and re-shape them. To dry, keep the louvers in the open position.

Wood Blinds:

  • For blinds with painted and stained finishes, clean with spray polish and a soft cloth. For best results, do not use water on any wood products.

Cellular Shades:

  • Strong detergents or spot removers may harm your cellular shades. Dry cleaning is also not recommended.
  • When deep cleaning is desired, you may wish to enlist a professional cleaning service


  • For minor dirt and stains, clean with warm water on a damp cloth. Wipe dry.
  • If more thorough cleaning is necessary, use a mild detergent diluted in water to a 5% solution and apply with a cotton cloth. Rinse area with plain water to remove any detergent residue and dry with a cloth.
