How To Clean Metal Blinds

Have you noticed dust and cobwebs building up on your metal blinds learn how to clean metal blinds to remove dirt and odor. Weekly dusting only goes so far to clean metal blinds. You should remove and clean your metal blinds completely at least once a year. There are a few simple steps to follow to achieve clean metal blinds.
To clean metal blinds, you will need:
  • Ammonia
  • Hot Water
  • Screwdriver
  • Bathtub
  1. Prepare to remove the metal blinds from the window frame. The metal blinds are attached to the window frame with brackets that normally have little covers. You may have to use a screwdriver to pry open the covers to be able to slide the blinds out of the brackets.
  2. Make sure the metal blinds are all the way up before removing from brackets. Gently slide the metal blinds toward you out of the brackets.
  3. Prepare a bathtub of hot water. Add a half of a cup of ammonia to the hot water.
  4. Place the metal blinds in the bathtub with the hot water and ammonia mixture. Slightly open the blinds so that the water and ammonia can get between each slat. For very dirty blinds you should let them soak for at least a half an hour.  
  5. Rinse the metal blinds. Using the shower head or a large cup rinse the metal blinds. After rinsing place a towel on the bottom of the top and prop the metal blinds up so that they do not fall and allow them to dry.  Once dry the metal blinds will look amazing and can be placed back into the brackets in the window frame.
