How Do I Clean My Blinds? Part 1 – Vinegar


Blinds are fiddly things. Fiddly to open, fiddly to close – and downright fiddly to clean, especially in dry Park City and the Salt Lake Valley, where dust is rife. But have no fear! With our 4-part series, we’ll give you a top tip each week to clean your blinds with minimal expletives.



Vinegar really is a miracle substance, despite its stinkitude. You can use it on almost any hard surface to clean, degrime and disinfect, and blinds are no different. Caveat: don’t use vinegar on wood or faux-wood blinds, as it may damage them.



  • Fill a clean spray bottle with 1 cup water, 1 cup white vinegar, 1 cup rubbing alcohol, and 3 drops of Dawn dish soap. Shake well.
  • Spray liberally onto the blinds, working from the top down and in a side-to-side fashion.
  • Wipe down with Swiffer dry cloths.


And hey presto, clean blinds in a jiffy!
