Stubborn Stains

It is highly recommended that you always test stain remover on a non-visible site first. No matter how much the product says it will not stain, you just never know. Many people have ruined their blinds by "cleaning" with the wrong stuff. Avoid this mistake by testing every product every time. Even good products can go bad and leave a stain.

The most important factor is choosing blinds from a company you can trust. Wood blinds can be repainted, and faux can be scrubbed. However, fabric is more delicate. Therefore, you need to be careful and keep them clean to stay looking nice.
