Cleaning is a chore we have to keep up with so I try to keep each task as simple as possible! Sheer shades have a delicate fabric so we have to use some care, but this isn’t a task you’ll have to do too frequently. Dirt and grime can be removed with a sponge and mild dish soap or light vacuuming with the brush attachment. Avoid strong cleaners with ammonia or disinfectants as they could damage your fabric. If you would like help tackling your specific stain, give us a call at 800-505-1905 or visit us in Live Chat – we are happy to help!

Dual sheer shades, or zebra shades, are a unique window treatment sure to make a statement in any room. You'll need a vacuum with a brush attachment, warm water, mild dish soap, a microfiber cloth, and a sponge to clean surface dirt and more stubborn stains.
