The kitchen window I closed metal shutters. Sink under the window, and his left plate. And no matter how carefully I'm not ready and did not wash the dishes, on the lamellae appear splashes of water and fat, plaque from adhering dust. Wash them often have that totally makes me delight.
So I decided to see how to cope with such a task other mistresses, but to share with you my findings. Many of the popular methods does not suit me, but someone may come in handy.
Remove and wash
Since the wash quality venetian blinds, without removing them from the window, it is difficult in my situation, during spring cleaning, I rented them to be placed on the floor and crawl around with a cloth. It is not very convenient.
If I had a bath rather than a shower, it could be easier to do:
- otmochit. Pour into a bath of warm water to dissolve the detergent therein and immerse shutters soak. If they are plastic, you can hold them in solution longer. Metal, like me, it is better for a long time do not expose to water. A timber, this method does not fit.
- wash - Soaked mud is easily removed with a soft cloth or sponge.
- rinse. The easiest way to do it, hanging shutters above the bath, allowing to drain the soapy water and showering them stream out of the shower on both sides.
- wipe dry. In order to lamellae did not remain divorced from soap and water, they should be wiped with a soft, dry cloth.
In my opinion, it is the most effective way to wash horizontal blinds plastic or aluminum from heavy pollution from which the kitchen can not escape. A full bath can be replaced by an oval basin or baby bath.
With metal and wood products more difficult - they are afraid of waterSo it is not recommended to soak them.
If daily cleaning and cleaning are not very contaminated curtains in the living room, the blinds can be cleaned without removing from the windows. Selection method will depend on the degree of contamination.
Method 1 - dry cleaning
The main enemy of housewives - this dust settles on surfaces. Fortunately, getting rid of it is not difficult. And this will help you:
- Soft brush or pipidastr. That's so funny is called a special whisk, which is used for cleaning the dust.
- A vacuum cleaner. This consumer unit is not only quickly cope with the task, but do not allow dust to scatter around the room, so that after some time to land on other surfaces.
Method 2 - wet cleaning
It is hardly necessary to describe the technology itself, how to wash the blinds. Each lamella individually simply wipe moistened with water or a detergent solution cloth.
But do it quickly and accurately does not always work, because the elements are very mobile and any awkward movement bend and wringing. And then straighten them creases is impossible without a trace.
I'll tell you about the two devices that facilitate the work ^
Special sponge washing horizontal blinds. I have the same as in the picture, but there are also a large number of working surfaces, their price is higher.
My expectations are not justified:
cotton gloves. The preferred devices of this is nothing!
To qualitatively wash blinds, you need to wear a glove or an old sock on his hand and, occasionally dipping it in soapy water, wipe each slat.
It is convenient in that it is pinched fingers and clean on both sides.
Now Detergents. Weak contamination can be easily removed simply with warm water. But on the long-standing and active fatty desirable impact.
- A solution of detergent dish perfectly will wash grease and soot. To make it, simply add a few drops into the water, to avoid a lot of foam. Then transfer the shutters in the closed position and moisten them with a sponge and a solution.
After a few minutes it can be washed off with clean water and wipe each slat is first wet, then dry with a cloth. I use gloves.
- The liquid for washing windows suitable for cleaning blinds. Instructions for use the same: the slats are transferred to the closed position, are sprayed with a composition and then one by one are wiped with a dry cloth.
- To wash the slats on the other sideEnough to crank them through 180 degrees and repeat the procedure.
- You need to wash from top to bottomSo as not to drip onto the already clean surfaces.
- And if at times a little cleaningIt is possible to use wet wipes designed for cleaning monitors. And the window wash after such cleaning is not necessary.
Method 3 - steam cleaning
One of the most commonly used I appliances - steam cleaner. Use it and clean the furniture in the home and freshen up carpets, and wash the windows and blinds.
Treated contamination hot steam easily washable cloth. Time is spent much less than using a soap solution.
Some of these methods are shown in the video in this article. You can look at to determine which one is right for you. My favorites - the soap solution with a glove instead of a steam cleaner and a rag. Perhaps some of you have, and their rapid and effective methods. I would be grateful if you would share them in the comments.
