    To do it properly it can take a while but they will look brand new. Slide each "vein" out from the strings that hold them in place.

    Put them in your bathtub as wash them with soapy water to release all of the built up grime. After drying slide them back in place and voila...beautiful clean blinds!

    Put on a cheap pair of gloves and use your fingers like dusters...get your fingers spread between the slats and slide them across, wiping the dirt off the tops and bottoms at the same time.

    Just replace them.

    Hi Jrk: Since they may be wood, don't dip them in water, they may separate and look awful, if not fall apart. What you can do is get an old sock and dip it in a mixture of a small squirt of Dawn dish soap, a tablespoon or two of vinegar and a gallon of warm water. Mix this up and put the sock on your hand, make a fist to wring it out fairly dry and wipe the blind slats one by one. You can do both sides at once. Not fun, but at least you can look outside while you're doing this:) Then, get some fresh water and rinse the same way, with the sock hand. And, if you get bored, you can make the sock a puppet and tell the slats how much better they are going to look when they are clean. :) It doesn't take that long, and while you're at it, go do those blades on the ceiling fan:) Good luck
