How to Clean Roller Shades
Cleaning Checklist
  • Vacuum with Hose Attachment
  • Warm Water
  • Microfiber Cloth
  • Sock
  • Mild Dish Soap
Caring Guide

Avoid submerging your roller shades in water as it might harm the inner workings. Instead, a gentle dusting is all they need. You can use the brush attachment on your vacuum to sweep across the fabric while supporting the shades from the back. This way, the fabric won't get crumpled or sucked into the hose. Don't have a brush attachment? No worries - just pop a sock or pantyhose over the vacuum hose and you're good to go!

How to Clean Cellular Shades
Cleaning Checklist
  • Vacuum with Hose Attachment
  • Warm Water
  • Microfiber Cloth
  • Mild Dish Soap
  • Compressed air
Caring Guide

To start, use the brush attachment on your vacuum to lift away any surface-level dust and dirt. Just make sure not to use the vacuum without the brush attachment, as it can cause the fabric to crumple and deform. For any debris that may be stuck inside the fabric cells, a can of compressed air should do the trick. If you're dealing with stains, try blotting them with a lint-free cloth, warm water, and mild dish soap. Avoid scrubbing the shade, as this can cause the fabric to pill. Once you've blotted the stain, make sure to dry the fabric with another cloth to prevent any water rings from forming. One important thing to keep in mind is to never submerge your cellular shades in water or get them overly wet during the cleaning process. This can cause the shade folds to lose their shape. So, be gentle and take your time, and your shades will look as good as new in no time!

First things first, make sure you're using the brush attachment on your vacuum to gently swipe across the fabric. It's important to support the fabric from behind to avoid any damage. Avoid vacuuming without the brush attachment, as it may crumple or deform the fabric.

For tougher stains or dirt, a sponge or microfiber cloth with some warm, soapy water can do the trick. Just make sure to be gentle when wiping the fabric. Avoid using strong cleaners, as they can damage the fabric.
