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




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!
