I was told to put a sock over my hand & do it that way, just wipe it, but not sure if sock is supposed to be wet or dry blush

Put the whole thing in the bath to soak with some bio washing powder in hot water. Then just rinse it off leave it on its side to dry out over night and hang it back up. No scrubbing required

Freaking impossible. I pay a chap to take them away once a year

I disposed of mine and put up some new fabric blinds. They were driving me crazy and I was pretty certain that - in the way of things - I'd never manage to have them looking really clean again no matter how much effort I put in.

I carefully take my blinds down .Take them outside and carefully put them in the bin. Then I carefully drive to the nearest B&M and buy some more. smile

I buy cheap and replace when they are too dirty to clean up with a baby wipe.

Unless your blinds cost a huge amount it really isnt worth the time because they are never properly clean with a dunk in soapy water .

Ah I've just worked out what they are and seem to remember a solution in a trashy women's magazine (magazine for trashy women). I think it involved a denture tablet.

I second using the bath. Unless they are wooden obviously.

Thanks for your advice mine are wooden and expensive so can't bin them .
Think I will have to carry on with just a cloth. It's so boring .
