Cleaning dusty window blinds can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. Gone are the days of taking your blinds down to clean them…you just need a couple of items you already have in your kitchen to clean your window blinds without breaking them!
One thing in my home that tends to get forgotten when I’m cleaning is my window blinds. It’s just not something that I think to clean until one day when I open my blinds and the sun shines right on all of the dust and dirt that has built up on them. Then I’m left wondering how many people have seen my blinds and thought…ew, gross. Hopefully nobody noticed, right? Back in the day, I used to take all of my blinds down twice a year and soak them in the bathtub. It was a complete pain, and I always ended up breaking a slat or two…not good. Last year, I tried this super easy trick, and I’m so happy to share how to clean window blinds without breaking them or taking them down…it’s just too easy!
See the dust? It’s not super visible, but it’s there.

What do you need to clean blinds?
Cut your microfiber cloth in half.
Wrap one half around the top of each of the tongs.
Secure each microfiber cloth with a rubber band or hair tie.
Insert the tongs with cloths into the slats in your blinds and apply pressure so the tongs close on the blinds. Move them back and forth across the blinds. The microfiber cloth will pull up all of the dust. Just wipe the cloths off with another cloth in between cleaning if they get too dusty.
If you have especially dirty blinds, you can lightly spray the microfiber cloths with an All -Purpose Cleaner like my homemade version and clean them.
