Cleaning Mini-Blinds - Not As Hard As You Think!

This Sparked Me!

Wipe down mini-blinds with a damp fabric softener sheet. This eliminates the static that causes dust to stick. The same trick works for TV and monitor screens.

    Hi, MMOWENS73!

Love the idea! Just tried it. So far so good - despite cat hair floating in the air around here.

Question, tho. When I dampened (slightly) a dryer sheet (new) and then wiped down some glossy black surfaces & monitors, the dryer sheet left streaks. Do you use sheets straight out of the box & dampen them or use ones that have already been through the dryer? Also, how much do you dampen the sheets? Just enough to dampen them or enough to rinse a fraction of the film out?

It's been 1/2 hour since I've wiped down the electronics & they're not covered in cat hair yet. So far so good! Thanks!
