How Do You Clean Cellular Shades?

- Mary D.

A: To clean cellular shades many of my clients use a vacuum hose on a low to medium setting with the brush attachment. This will gently remove the dust from the shade. Be sure to use horizontal strokes following the pleats of the shade. Otherwise the fabric may be crumpled and misshapen.

If the shade gets a stain, we suggest using a mild soap and a white wash cloth to blot the shade clean. Do not scrub the fabric as this may cause pilling or damage. Designer Rose Burns
