THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO CLEAN WINDOW BLINDS

Blinds. There is no quicker or more effective way to switch from natural light to privacy please! Just a twist of the wrist and the magic happens. Surely, this is why just about every window in just about every house and apartment in the U.S. comes dressed with BLINDS. We have come to expect them. We have come to depend on them. Curtains and the like are just decorative bonuses; blinds do the grunt work.

But speaking of work, they sure are a lot of work to clean. Blinds collect dust like nobody’s business, and getting that dust off is a pain. It is time consuming, and I know I’ve never felt like I’ve gotten minecompletely dust-free–even after a day devoted to cleaning them.

Well, that was before I knew THIS awesome hack. The only hack you’ll ever need for cleaning your blinds. Are you ready? Let’s figure out how to clean window blinds together!

Here are the things you’ll need: tongs, two microfiber dust cloths (you may want to have some extra for swapping out when the originals get dusty), and four rubber bands.

Let’s go to work!

Wrap your dust cloths around each side of your tongs and secure with two rubber bands a piece. Make sure that the smooth side of the dust cloth faces in and the seam is on the side or back for the most effective dusting.

Clasp your tongs around each individual blind and just LOOK at all of the dust that comes back! This is seriously the most efficient way anyone has ever cleaned their blinds. Ever.

If your dry cloths aren’t getting the job done, spray your favorite cleaner on the blinds as you go. We love making our own and use these DIY household cleaner recipes on this list to do it!

Now, if your blinds are anything like mine, you’ll need to change your microfiber cloths out a few times over before you’re done. Just do it, you’re still saving mad amounts of time by using this hack!

I appreciate that this method doesn’t require me to donate my favorite pair of tongs to the cleaning closet either. Just remove the cloths when you’re done, send the tongs through the dishwasher, and they’re ready to hang out with the kitchen utensils once again.

So, happy cleaning, friends! We’d love to hear how it goes for you in the comments!

Seasons Greetings to all.

2012 has been a great year for me and for that I thank all my customers and suppliers.

Christmas 2012 has seen in excess of 300% growth in sales, I am astounded by this.  This has been caused mainly by my expanding amount of websites and geographical coverage.  I cover all of Cheshire, North West England and am just expanding my coverage of North Wales.  It goes to prove that if you are prepared to travel the business is there to be found.  I now do more business away from my home town of Chester than I do in the City itself.

I get a lot of contact from customers because I ask everyone to post a comment on my testimonial section of the website.  If you have dealt with me and have not posted a comment, I would be very grateful if you could write something here.

Next year I am looking to expand further by selling blinds online to the DIY market.  This will be run by my wife and I will give her my full support to this and I am sure this will be a great success.

Tomorrow is our last day of fitting, we are very tired after many long days and nights work.  I am glad to say that we have not missed anyone and have been able to fit everyone in before Christmas.

Both May and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Paul
