The accordion-style folded fabric of Roman blinds is especially prone to dust and staining. Using a special upholstery attachment, get into the habit of regularly vacuuming them to keep them dust free.

When it comes to stubborn stains, you need to approach with a little more caution. If the care label agrees, you should be able to use a damp cloth and a little fabric stain remover to gently bring the stain out. Don’t go too hard though – this may damage the fabric and/or leave you with an ultra-clean spot that makes the rest of your blinds look dirty.
