To clean fabric pleated shades, vacuum with the bristle brush attachment, or wipe the shades with a dry sponge or dampened microfiber towel. For a more thorough cleaning, place the shades on a table before vacuuming or wiping. Spot clean fingerprints or marks with fabric cleaner or upholstery spray foam.
To avoid build-up of dust or grime, it is a good idea to vacuum the shades on a regular basis. Always begin at the top and work downward to avoid soiling areas that are already clean. Avoid the use of detergents or other strong cleaning products, which wear the fabric down over time.
