HOW TO CLEAN YOUR VERTICAL BLINDS FABRIC
Most modern fabrics can simply be wiped down with a clean damp cloth.
The best way to clean the fabric is to unclip the chain at the bottom of the strip of fabric you which to clean and then unhook it from the rail.
Place the fabric on a clean flat surface and wipe clean with a damp cloth. This could be done why the fabric is hanging on the rail but you run the risk of creasing the fabric.
After cleaning the fabric simply hang it back on the rail and reconnect the bottom chain.
