Quickly Clean Window Blinds By Wrapping Tongs In Microfiber Cloth

If you’re like me, you’ve never really thought to clean your window blinds. Fellow slobs, here’s a PSA: Every now and then, your blinds get dusty and they need to be cleaned. To make it easier, One Crazy House recommends using tongs.

It’s pretty simple. Grab a pair of tongs, four rubber bands and two microfiber dust cloths. Wrap a cloth around each tong using the rubber band, then grab an individual blind, swipe and repeat. If you really want to get crazy, spray some household cleaner on your rags before you dust.

I’ll admit, I was sceptical of this method at first because I thought, “what’s so hard about just using your hands?” but it actually does make the process more efficient. You can quickly grab the entire blind instead of having to work down it, plus, you don’t get dirty. To check out the full post, head to One Crazy House at the link below.
