Cleaning and maintenance of roller blinds

The curtain should be inspected every year. Check whether the guide rail installed in the hole for shades blinds operation is clean, and whether there are objects stuck in it? Because in the guide rail and in the curtain panel tend to accumulate a lot of dirt, even fallen leaves, then you only need to use a damp wipe clean.

1.Distinguish material of shades blinds

How your roller blinds are cleaned depends on the roller blind fabric. Nylon or cotton is mostly used for roller blind fabrics, and bamboo weaving and paper weaving are also very popular. If the roller shade material can come into contact with water, follow the cleaning procedure below. If they are made of materials that cannot come into contact with water (paper weave, adhesive backing, prints, etc…), cleaning with a scouring pad and vacuum cleaner in place is the only safe way to clean them.

Most stains can be removed with a clean, soft damp cloth. For small stains or stains, a stain remover pen can be used. If you need to use a damp cloth with bleach to remove a stain, always test a small area around the edge first, as bleach can sometimes dissolve some fabrics or cause more severe fading.

Step 5: Add some neutral detergent or laundry detergent to the tub water and mix until bubbles start to form on the surface

Step 6: Carefully put the roller blind into the bathtub. If the roller blind is long, it can be opened slightly loosely so that it can fully contact the water in the bathtub

Step 7: Soak in bathtub water for a few hours.

Step 8: Next, starting from the top of the roller shade, gently wipe back and forth with a soft cloth or sponge. This will help remove any remaining dirt and/or stains. For tough stains, scrub them lightly with an old toothbrush.

Step 9: Drain the soapy water from the bathtub. Rinse the roller blind with clean water. Repeat until all soap is removed. If soapy residue remains on the blinds, dirt and dust will pick up quickly.

Step 10: If a partner can provide assistance, lift the upper rail of the roller blind and let the roller blind hang down. You can use the shower head in the bathroom to rinse, which will remove the soapy water faster.

Step 11: Drape the roller blinds on a drying rack or clothesline until they are completely dry

Step Twelfth: Reinstall the roller blind on the window.
