Blinds for the plantation are easy to wash and do not require serious maintenance. Regularly remove dirt and dust with a vacuum. If your blinds are too dirty, wipe them with white vinegar to keep them clean. Be sure to avoid using too many liquid cleaners on plantation blinds, especially wooden ones. Liquid detergents can cause damage over time.
Method 1 of 3: Dust Removal
Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust.
A simple feather anther can be used to remove dust from obvious contaminants. Swipe the anther between each curtain, hitting the tops and bottoms to remove accumulated dust.
- If there is no anther at hand, use a clean, dry cloth.
Use a vacuum cleaner to hold the dust.
Use a vacuum to remove dust more thoroughly. Put the upholstery mount on the vacuum cleaner. Slide the fasteners through the blades to remove dirt.
- It is also a good idea to vacuum the floor around the blades, as dust can get on your carpet or floor during the cleaning process.
Swipe the dryer sheet over the blinds.
Dryer sheets actually help prevent dust from sticking to surfaces. After dusting the roller shutters, take a sheet of the dryer. Spend it on each blade. This should result in less dust accumulation in the future, reducing cleaning time.
Method 2 of 3: Removing dirt and grime
Fill a bowl with white vinegar.
White vinegar can be used to wipe stains from plantation shutters. Fill a small bowl with only white vinegar. The exact amount you need depends on the size of your blinds and how much cleaning they need.
Wet a sock or cotton glove.
For the easiest cleaning, wipe the sash with a sock or cotton gloves. Find a clean, fresh sock or glove and dip it in white vinegar. Squeeze the sock or glove until it is almost wet.
Wipe the blinds.
Put a sock or glove on your hand. Slowly run a sock or mitten over each curtain. White vinegar should remove dirt, debris, and stains. For very dirty shutters, have another sock or glove on hand if the one you are using gets dirty.
Wipe until socks or gloves are clean.
Wipe each curtain as many times as you need to keep the sock or glove clean. The last time you wipe, there should be no dirt or debris on the sock or glove. After finishing, the blinds should look much cleaner.
- Remember to change which sock or glove you use if your sock or glove is very dirty. It is important not just to rub dirt on the blades.
Method 3 of 3: Avoid common mistakes
Refrain from using water.
Since plantation blinds are usually made of wood, cleaning with water is not recommended. Usually, regular pollination is all that is needed to maintain plantation blinds. Water can cause wood deformation or discoloration, so never use water as a roller blind cleaner.
Limit the use of liquid detergents.
In general, follow simple dust to clean the blades. Use liquid detergents, such as vinegar, only when the blinds are heavily soiled. The smaller the effect of liquids on plantation shutters, the better.
- Even when using a liquid cleaner, make sure you use only a small amount. Socks and rags soaked in liquid detergents should be slightly damp before applying them to plantation shutters.
Saw the blinds regularly.
Make it a habit to saw the curtains every week. If you regularly remove unwanted dust, this reduces the need to use liquid-based cleaners. Blinds for plantations should have minimal exposure to any moisture, not just water.

How can I clean the shutters on the plantation with vinegar and how much should I use?
Place one inch of white vinegar in a clean spray bottle and fill the rest with water. Then lightly spray the solution on a clean cloth and wipe the blades. Be sure to return the cloth if necessary so that you always use a clean part of the cloth.
