Today I’m sharing a great quick tip as part of the Arm & Hammer Switch & Save Challenge:
There are lots of jobs I like to do around my house. I love to cook. I enjoy folding laundry, dusting, and vacuuming.
But there is one job, maybe the only job, that I really hate…
and that’s cleaning the blinds.
There is no great or easy way to clean them I’m convinced. I’ve tried taking them down and putting them in a soapy tub. I’ve scrubbed them out on the patio. I’ve wiped each slat individually as they hang.
But whichever way I try, they are slow, tedious, and a big old pain in the rear.
That’s why I lit up when a dear friend of mine, Amy from Diary of a Quilter gave me a good tip for cleaning blinds.
A used dryer sheet to be exact. They have antistatic properties so the dust clings to them.
She uses the dryer sheets to do a quick dusting job on her blinds periodically. If you dust periodically, the dirt doesn’t have a chance to build up, and they are easier to keep clean. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

How often do you clean your blinds? Once a week? Once a month? Once a year? Or maybe never if you can help it?
