    Hi Linda! I don't remove the slats when I clean the blinds. I just drop the whole set in the tub. The cords will come clean too. :)

      Thanks for responding to my question!! Do you have to worry about the mechanical parts getting rusty?

    I've found for old discolored blinds soaking them with vinegar & baking soda works GREAT....

    It could be a concern, but I try to do this cleaning on a hot sunny day and lay the blinds to dry in the sun so they dry quick. :) Just want to be sure they dry completely.

    I open my mini-blinds their full length. Then I put them in my bathtub with liquid cleaner. Next, turn on the Jacuzzi feature to agitate the water! Then, I rinse them off with the hand-held shower feature. Finally, I drape them over my clothes
