I have wooden blinds that all have a nice coat of dust on them blush, what would be the most efficient way of cleaning them?

I put an old sock over my hand and then use it to polish each of the slats! Works well smile

Good question, I have lots around the house (inc large bay window in living room).

Has anyone used one of these things before?

Brush attachment on hoover pipe. I speak from experience - I watch DP do it regularly and he does a v good job <stealth boast> smile

I have one of those slinky, definitely a handy buy if you have lots of venetian blinds. Use dry to dust and damp to clean. The fabric bit can go in the wash.

Pledge fluffy duster with replaceable heads.

Cheers Gerty, I may have to 'treat' myself to one of those then it is my birthday soon.

Actually, dh loves cleaning and a gadget, perhaps I could persuade him to do it grin
