Using a feather duster, microfibre cloth or the soft brush head on the vacuum, simply start from the top and work your way to the bottom cleaning from left to right. Ensure the fabric is in the down position so you can clean both the front and back and remember to clean inside the cells. To clean inside the cells, simply run the soft brush head of the vacuum down each side of the blind to suck anything out.
- If you have a stain on the Honeycomb Blind fabric, firstly try dabbing the stain with a damp cloth. If this does not remove the stain, try a gentle dishwashing liquid in some warm water and dab the stain. Avoid using harsh chemicals that contain bleach to prevent discolouration to the blind fabric.
