My 'white' vertical fabric blinds are absolutley manky thanks to my son and his grubby hands! Looks like they have a coffee stain on them (?)

How do i was them? will they survive the washing machine?
I dont think soaking them in the bath would help as they are so dirty!

Will they survive in a washing machine? No, I very much doubt it.

Hand wash them or buy new, A bit of vanish might help.

They will just shrivel up if you put them in the washing machine .
I put mine in the bath with w/powder and scrub them with a hard brush , they come up nice !
Oh and keep the weights in the bottom whilst doing it as when thet are wet they kink something terrible , i then hang them out to drip dry ( make sure you put the peg at just the very top ) as again they will have dints in were pegs have been .

We clean ours in the sink.
Dilute some washing powder in hot water in a washing up bowl.
Dip in the blinds lifting up and down a few times then use a sponge to wipe them up and down.
Rince in bath or with a shower.
Re hang with tea towel under so they drip dry job done.
Or you could risk rolling them up in a pair of tights and washing them in the machine ????
I use option 1 .

Thanks for all your comments, decided i wasnt brave enough for the washing machine, ive took them down and put them in the bath with some washing gel and hot water, will give them a scrub in a hour or so
