Special Cleaning Instructions

Cellular and Pleated Shades

Dusting and vacuuming are recommened for monthly maintenance.

  • Spot clean with mild soap.
  • For deep stains or soil, contact a cleaner from the certified network of ultrasonic cleaners.

For assistance in locating a certified blind cleaner that serves your area, visit or contact Customer Service.

Wood Blinds

For painted and stained finishes, dust with a soft cloth. Never use water on wooden blinds.

Vertical Blinds

Vinyl vanes may be removed and immersed in water for cleaning. To eliminate static electricity, coat the vanes with a thin layer of mild detergent.

Fabric vanes should not be immersed in water or dry cleaned.

Sheer Enchantment fabrics are steam-pressed in the manufacturing process but may need to be re-steamed or ironed at a low temperature before hanging. Do not steam or iron fabric while it is on the vanes as they will be damaged. Do not put fabric in the dryer. Machine-washable fabric is easy to wash, and there's no need to take down the entire blind to do so!

  • Unsnap the fabric from the vanes and place in wash.
  • Use the gentle cycle, warm water and Woolite® Fine Fabric Wash or other mild laundry detergent. Do not use chlorine bleach.
  • Line dry fabric. Do not put fabric in dryer!
  • If necessary, steam or iron at a low temperature before putting fabric back on vane.
  • Snap fabric back onto the vinyl vanes.
