The microfiber cloths will pick up any dust and debris from the blinds with ease! If any dirt is left behind, spray your microfiber cloths with a little furniture polish, then wipe the blinds again. You can turn the microfiber cloths during the cleaning process if they get too dusty and dirty.

Once you are finished cleaning your blinds, just toss the microfiber cloths into the wash so you can reuse them for future cleaning!
