How to Clean Bamboo Blinds. Bamboo blinds are gaining immense popularity nowadays because they are considered an environmentally friendly material. They are durable and add an instant charm to any ordinary room with their unique natural looks, texture and earthy tones. Bamboo blinds are low-maintenance and easy to clean. Here's how to clean bamboo blinds.
Things You'll Need
- Hot water
- Oil soap
Fill up a bathtub with hot water and mix in a little oil soap, such as Murphy Oil Soap. Any good quality oil soap will help you get rid of dirt, cobwebs, most stains and eliminate bad odor from the bamboo blinds.
Immerse the blind in the tub in a bundled form and shuffle the blind a few times to ensure that the soapy water reaches everywhere. Clean one blind at a time.
Let the blind sit in the tub for a couple of minutes. Then take the blind out of the tub and set it aside.
Drain the bathtub and rinse it so that the dirt and grime is washed away.
Repeat the process if the blind still appears dirty. If not, fill up the tub with hot water and rinse the blind repeatedly to remove the soap. Use the shower spray to accelerate this process.
Do this for all the bamboo blinds in your house.
Take the blinds to a sunny place, such as a terrace, garden or backyard. Hang them up to air dry for at least for 20 minutes.
Ensure that the blinds are completely dry before hanging them back on your windows.
