    Easiest way to clean off (dust) blinds

    Without any specialized tool/implement, and without a whole lot of setup, how can I easily wipe dust off from venetian blinds?

    I usually just use some kind of feather duster.  That seems to work the best for me.  Hope this helps!

    Depends just how dirty. Sometimes dusting doesn't work because the dirt is stuck on. Then have to take the enitre  thing off and was in the bathtub. After that first good clean a feather duster sounds good.

    Get curtains! They take the industrial feel out of a living area and impart your own personality/taste into a room.  Plus, curtains are easily bio-degradable in landfills.  Mini-blinds may be here long after we've moved to mars.  Curtains are usually easy to wash and they can be made at home or purchased online, in-store, or....

    Here are a couple of ideas you could try (and I have washed them in the tub AND hosed them down outside):
    -Blow the dust off with a blow dryer or push it off with a dry cloth and then vacuum.
    -If they are really bad, put them out in the rain.
    I've found that wet cleaning works best.

    Swiffer duster and vaccuming works well for me.

    Rip them violently off the window frame, cutting your hand, damging the wall.  No wait, I would clean each blind individually wiping both sides.  The tricky business is right around where the cords go through.  If I had some now, I might try to hit them up with the vacuum cleaner hose attachment.  I have previously taken the down and washed them in the bathtub.

    clean them with furniture polish, but then keep up with the dusting once a week. The dust won't stick. However, if you spray them then don't clean them regularly, the dust WILL build up...yuck!
