How to Clean Your Blinds the Easy Way Using Krud Kutter
We bought our house almost five years ago! The house came with those great white faux wood 2” blinds. We removed them after we bought the house so we could do our renovation. Then we remodeled the kitchen last year and had to leave the blinds up because we were still living in our house during the renovation. So, you can imagine how disgusting those blinds got — not to mention all of the grime just from being in the kitchen.
I have been itching to clean the blinds for months now but I kept putting it off because it seemed like such a monumental task. I finally got up enough courage to do it on a gorgeous Kentucky day, and to my surprise it was actually really easy! It only took me about an hour from start to finish to clean all five sets of blinds in my kitchen.
I want to share with you what I did because it took very little effort. Honestly, the worst part of it was taking them down and hanging them up.
First, let's talk supplies. There is one essential supply that will really save you time... and that is a really good degreaser. I used Krud Kutter. I would also recommend Purple Power to clean the blinds You want something strong that you would find in the automotive section. These products cut all the grime so you can do minimal scrubbing.
Before I took the blinds down, I released them completely, so that all of the blinds were exposed. I found this was much easier to do while they were hanging from the window. Then I carried them outside.
I have a privacy fence which is where I chose to hang them. This worked out perfectly because it allowed all the grime to drip off, the blind was away from the grass, and it gave me a nice flat surface to lightly scrub the blinds against. I used a bungee cord to hang them from the fence. I just put the bungee cord underneath the top part of the blind and then wrapped it around a fence plank.
