Broken slats can be repaired easily by swapping it out for a perfectly good one on the bottom.
Swap out slats using the same technique used to shorten blinds. Pop off the plastic buttons on the bottom of the blinds.
Remove the pull cords up to the broken slat. Replace the slat with one from the bottom.
Re-thread the pull cord through all slats, replace plastic buttons on the bottom and presto!!

    I clean mine by hanging them outside on the side of the house on hooks and then spray them and scrub them with a broom, and finish by hosing them off and letting them air dry.

      Jill Similar, I hang them each on two hooks I have in my shower....Steamy hot water from my hand-held shower spray chases dirt away. Flip over, rehang. Repeat! Wipe down with a thirsty towel!

    nah, I still say Ms.Johnson in New Mexico has the best idea/way to clean blinds.

    then again, if you have one of them power washers, that would be good too.

    Wow, this is a really great guide for anyone tired of looking at grimy blinds! Mine have gotten pretty bad recently, and I've tried dusting, but I just can't get them clean. I'll have to try vinegar and water, and see if that helps. I also really liked
