Using ultrasonic blind cleaning equipment can make all the difference in the world. If you have never used it before, here are a few steps to help guide you through the cleaning process.

Step 1 - Dust

Begin by dusting the blinds completely. You do not want to add them to the ultrasonic cleaner with dust on them. You can start with using just a rag or a duster to get all of the big pieces off. You may want to use the air cans to spray if you find that not all of the dust is coming off as you would like.

Step 2 - Clean

Now that you have removed all of the dust you can begin cleaning the blinds. You will need to use an ultrasonic blind cleaner that is large enough for the blinds that you have so you do not have to bend or ruin them trying to fit them in. There should already be water in the cleaner and if not, you will need to add it. Then, add the cleaning solution to the warm water. Place the blinds in a holder that comes with the blind cleaner. Typically these will be made to fit inside but also allow the blinds to be submerged safely. Then, place the holder inside of the cleaner. When you put it in, if the water isn't high enough to submerge the blinds, fill it up further.

Make sure that you check the manual as well as the material of the blinds so that you know how long the blinds should be kept in there to be cleaned. Then, allow them to sit in the cleaner for the allotted time.

Step 3 - Dry

Once the blinds are done you will need to drain the water. Allow them to sit with the water drained for about 30 minutes. This will help the excess water to seep out. Then, find an appropriate place to hang your blinds to dry. You can use a drying rack or a clothes line. If you do not have either one of those, you can lay them out on a table and then flip them over a few times. You want to leave them out until they are completely dry. Depending on the material this could take a few minutes, hours or days. Once they are try you can reattach them in the window that they came from and repeat with the next set of blinds.

You want to keep inn mind that only one set of blinds should be cleaned at a time, even if more can fit. Also, it is very important to check the type of material of the blinds so that you know how long they will need to be in the cleaner. The soap may also change depending on the material and you want to prevent any damage that could be done during the cleaning process.
