The Best Way to Clean Cellular Shades

  1. To clean surface-level dust and dirt, lift it away by gently sweeping across the fabric with the brush attachment of your vacuum. Do not vacuum without the brush attachment, as it may crumple and deform the fabric.
  2. Use a can of compressed air to blow away any debris from inside the fabric cells.
  3. To clean away stains, you can try blotting the stain with a lint-free cloth, warm water and mild dish soap. Do not scrub the shade, as it may cause the fabric to pill. Blot the fabric dry with another cloth to prevent water rings.
  4. Never submerge your cellular shades in water, or get it overly wet in the cleaning process as it may cause the shade folds to lose their shape.
