How To Clean Your Roller Blinds

August 3rd, 2014 in All About Blinds

Strong robust and easy to clean, our roller blinds are an excellent choice for your home. But what happens when they get a little dusty or there’s a few water-spots or stains on the fabric? Take a quick look at our cleaning guide to find out the best way for you to get those roller blinds looking like new again!

Dusting

Dusting

Dusting your blinds on a regular basis can stop the build up of unwanted fluff. Rather than remove the blind completely from the window, you can even leave it hanging- lowering it enough so that you can quickly and gently dust off the material. One tip we would give you is not to use one of the fuzzy yellow dusters- these leave trails of fluff across the fabric which kind of defeats the object. A dry cloth will do the job nicely and mean that you’ll be able to keep on top of your blinds maintenance.

Polyester Roller Blinds

The majority of the blinds we sell are made from a polyester material. While this is suitable for cleaning, it does require a more gentle touch. For our polyester blinds we recommend that you use either a damp cloth to wipe gently or dab at any stained areas or, believe it or not, baby wipes!

It may sound a little strange but baby wipes have proved themselves to be the best cleaning aid for our roller blinds. They’re just damp enough to clean thoroughly without leaving any marks themselves and they don’t use any harmful substances that can damage or stain the fabric.

Baby Wipes

The best thing about using baby wipes? They’re multipurpose! You won’t need to get them in specially to clean your blinds. Thy’re so useful around the home- not to mention after those nights out when you wear half your make up and can’t quite get the soap to scrub it off properly- and, if you have children yourself, you’ll always find a use for them.

PVC Roller Blinds

Our waterproof roller blinds are virtually indestructible. Not only are they water resistant, they’re also flame retardant, fungal resistant and able to withstand even the most vigorous cleaning.

While this can be extremely useful, it also makes them really, really easy to maintain. Once again, baby wipes will do the trick nicely, as will a damp cloth, and you can simply remove the roller from the window to clean the material down. You can even pop them in the bathtub or use the shower head to rinse them off!

Quick and Easy

And there you have it! Quick and easy cleaning tips to keep those roller blinds looking fresher for longer 🙂

  1. Hi there. I have the most beautiful, blinds2go, day to night, voile, roller blind in my kitchen. I also have some hyacinths on the widow sill packed with moss. The moss has left a yellow stain on my beautiful blind and I am utterly gutted that this has happened. My fault entirely for having the hyacinths too near to the blind.
    What I’m wanting to know is what, if there’s anything, I can use to remove the stain ?
    My only last minute thought was to replace the whole blind !!!
    Hopefully you have a magic suggestion.
    Kind regards

    • Hi Ann, I’m sorry but given that this is a rather specific problem we don’t have any advice for you, sorry. I’ve had a search online and there don’t seem to be many suggestions that relate to your particular problem either, so we aren’t going to be able to provide much help I’m afraid. If you find that you do have to replace the blind then give our sales team a call before you do, as we might be able to help in another way.
