How to clean traditional blinds?
First, we are going to teach you how to clean traditional blinds. You will see how the procedure is similar to the cleaning of the roller sun blinds.
It is important that before following the advice that we are going to give you, follow the instructions on the fabric label (if it has one), since cleaning techniques may vary according to its manufacture and type of fabric.
We can distinguish different spots depending on whether they are superficial or more voluminous.
With superficial spots
In the case of superficial stains, we can clean roller sun blinds without lifting the mechanism.
With the help of a damp cloth and neutral soap we rub the stain, and once finished we will remove the soap with a damp cloth only with water.
With bulky spots
In the case of a larger stain, if it has not been removed with the previous step, we must introduce the fabric in the washing machine and proceed to apply a washing as carefully as possible.
In the case of a delicate fabric, under no circumstances should we put it in the washing machine. We would follow the previous procedure until the stain is completely removed.
This way you will have managed to eliminate it completely in a few minutes.
You will only have to wait for the fabric to dry completely to proceed to hang it again in your blind.
How to clean roller sun blinds?
If it is a matter of cleaning a roller sun blind, things get easier, since we can clean blinds without hanging, regardless of the type of tissue or stain.
The procedure consists of rubbing the stained surface with a damp cloth (preferably microfiber).
In most cases, this will suffice, since these fabrics are made of materials that do not allow stains to adhere.
However, if it happens to you that the stain does not completely disappear, we must apply the same method this time with neutral soap.
After finishing rubbing, we will help ourselves with another damp cloth to remove the soap completely and try to leave the fabric as dry as possible.
Important: In no way should we use abrasive products as these could completely ruin our roller sun blind.
And that’s it!
We are sure that by following these procedures you will be able to leave your roller sun blinds like new.
However, we take this opportunity to remind you that if you have any questions, you can contact us through our social networks or in the comments.
