How do you go about cleaning Day/Night pleated RV blinds?
ANSWER: I need to preface these Day/Night Blind cleaning instructions by disclosing that I have not personally tried any of these techniques myself. But in doing research I have found some common methods that other RVers have used to clean their Day/Night Blinds successfully.
I am going to assume that the blinds you have are made of fabric. For normal cleaning some RVers use Feather Dusters on a weekly basis to keep dirt and grime from accumulating. On an annual basis some RVers use upholstery Vacuum attachments to thoroughly clean the blinds.
For very dirty/soiled blinds some RVers have done the following:
Important Note: Before using any of the techniques or cleaning materials listed below you should test a small portion of the blind to make sure that no discoloration of the fabric or damage to the pleating occurs from the process.
1. Some RVers have removed their blinds completely and soaked them in a bathtub full of warm water and some OxyClean. Once the blinds are dry they can be re-hung. The two videos below will guide you through the process of removing the shades and then how to clean them in a bathtub using OxyClean.

2. Some RVers have used Portable Steam Cleaners with an upholstery attachment to clean their blinds. Of course my fear here is that the steam will steam out the pleats of the blinds.
OK, that is all I got. I urge any of our visitors who have actually done this cleaning job successfully to leave a comment to let all of us know what worked for them.
I hope this helped a little.
