This post shows you how to clean horizontal blinds without removing them and it is super easy to do.
If you hate removing your blinds to clean them as much as I do, and you’re wondering how to clean horizontal blinds without removing them? Then this post is for you!
I think we can all agree that cleaning blinds is already such a tedious chore/task. And having to remove them before cleaning them makes it even more tedious. However, it doesn’t have to be! You can get your horizontal blinds really clean without having to bring them down at all.
In this post, I share exactly how to clean horizontal blinds without removing them. And it’s honestly super easy and makes cleaning blinds a little less of a pain in the a** haha!

Step 1- Gather Supplies
Step 2- Vacuum Blinds From Top To Bottom With Brush Attachment
Start by closing the blind slats facing up, as shown below. Once they are facing up, use the brush vacuum attachment to vacuum every single slat thoroughly.
Then, when you’re done with that side, close the blind slats facing down and repeat the same process.
If you have done this correctly, your blinds should be mostly free of dust at this point.
Step 3- Fill Up A Bucket With Hot Water And Cleaner
Next, get a bucket than can fit about a gallon of water (it doesn’t have to be exact) and fill it up with hot water. And then add about a teaspoon of Tide or 2 small drops of Dawn dish soap. I use either or (not together), and they both work well.
Step 4- Wipe Blinds With A Rag And Cleaning Solution. Rinse And Repeat Until Finished
Once the hot water is ready, start cleaning one slat at a time. (as shown above) Rinse the rag often. If your blinds are extra dirty, you might have to change your water a few times.
When you have removed all the stains and remaining dust/dirt and your blinds are nice and clean, toss the dirty water and refill the bucket with plain water. Use this water to rinse the blinds. You’ll need a dry clean rag to wipe each slat one last time to ensure you aren’t leaving any residue from the Tide or Dawn dish soap.
Step 5- Open Blinds And Let Them Air Dry
Your blinds are clean!
At this point, your blinds should be nice and clean, so all you need to do is let them dry. (they dry fast) I like to pass a clean, dry rag through each slat until they have all been wiped. Then open the blinds (as shown above) and let the blinds air dry.
I do not recommend opening the window/s to help them dry. You don’t want dirt on your freshly cleaned blinds haha!
And that’s it! Repeat these steps for however many blinds you have.
This is exactly how I clean my blinds without removing them, and I haven’t had to take them down to clean yet. This method keeps them very clean. And if you do it often, each time is faster and easier to do. I usually aim for once a month.
