Oh my goodness. It meets all my criteria because it is super quick, easy enough that others in the family can help out, and doesn’t require taking them down because although that method works, mine are IMPOSSIBLE to get down without a two person effort and perhaps just a wee bit of fighting between my husband and I. So, that way is just no good.

I have tried this way twice now to be sure that it really is as awesome as I thought it was the first time – and I think it is even awesomer (yes, I made up this word) after the second try.

If you want to clean your blinds in no time flat and without hassle and fighting with your spouse, you will LOVE this method.

Here’s how to clean your blinds like a pro using an amazing secret weapon.

Wanna know the secret weapon? Here it is:


Yes, it’s a sock!

And other than water, this is really all you need for this project!

First, get your sock wet










Next, start attacking your blinds. The beauty is that you can wash BOTH side of each blink slat at the SAME TIME!

Third, admire all the dust and grime you are cleaning off

You may have little bits left behind as shown below if they were really dusty as mine were. Then quickly swipe over them a second time, which goes super quick!

I think aside from being able to do both sides at once, it’s really cool that you don’t even have to take the sock off your hand to rinse and wring it out. You can do all of that with the sock still on your hand!

  1. Thank you for these tips! You Rock!!!

  2. We have the metal mini blinds in our motor home. Cannot take them down to clean. Will try the sick trick. Any other suggestions for cleaning as they bend pretty easily?

    • I would think this might be the best method if they bend easily since you are controlling the pressure on each slat since you are using your hand.
