I need some serious help with cleaning my roman shades. They are (or were) white and need some cleaning. Anyone?

    you could take them down, if possible, and soak and scrub in the tub with some oxyclean type substance. rinse well and let dry. or do the whole thing outside if possible.

    I would try soaking them in the bathtub with baking soda and white vinegar.

    It really depends on the fabric. If they were made with a fabric that is dry clean only you will have a problem if you soak them in water. The lining could also shrink. Call a professional window treatment cleaner in to see what you are dealing with. I have seen roman shades be ruined by being home cleaned. Good luck!
