Best Way to Clean Dusty Blinds

3 Materials
2 Minutes

Blinds are really annoying to clean, so when I found this clever trick on the internet using salad tongs, I thought I would give it a try! I can’t tell you how great it was for getting the dust off the blinds -- with so little effort.
Isn't that like magic?!

Here are my dirty blinds. Look how dusty those suckers are! Step 1: gather your materials

I used a pair of tongs, a microfiber cloth, and two rubber bands.

Step 2: Cut the cloth

Because of the thickness of my tongs, I had to cut the cloth into fourths so that they would fit between the slats of the blinds. If you're using a thinner cloth, you might not need to do this. Step 3: Secure the cloths

I wrapped a cloth around each arm of the tongs, then I used a rubber band to secure it in place making an X with the rubber band by slipping it over the cloth, giving it a twist, then slipping it over again.
