How do I clean the pull cords on my shades? They look grungy on the ends. Straight soap and water didn’t do much.

    Mix some OxyClean or Awesome Orange (my favorite) powder with water to make a runny paste and rub this on and wipe off. Should clean it all off.

    Thank you! How much rinsing do you think? I was going to try magic erasers, too. The cords just make it look like we never wash our hands 🙄

    TAKE A CLEAN TOWEL AND DAMPEN IT IN A MIX OF WARM WATER, OXICLEAN AND BAKING SODA. PUT THE CORDS IN BETWEEN THE FOLDS AND RUB GENTLY.

    I agree with OxyClean too, but as long as it is fabric you may also prefer to use any detergent like All, Tide or Gain and add somd softener in the water.
