Caring for your honeycomb blinds

When choosing window treatments, like any home decor item, it's always difficult to decide between a functional piece or a stylish one. The latest trends tend to include expensive material that is difficult to care for or install. However, honeycomb shades are one type of blind that can fit into any decorating scheme, and are multi functional.

Their simple look allows them to be easily paired with almost any kind of overlapping curtains and drapes. Additionally, their effective insulating properties make your home more energy efficient so you can save money on utility bills. 

One thing that may seem challenging about furnishing your windows with honeycombs is their care and maintenance. Despite the unique shape and cloth-like material, cleaning these blinds is effortless. 

Daily vacuuming with a soft bristled brush or dusting are good habits because they prevent dirt and dust from building up. When vacuuming your floors try to add your blinds to this routine so you won't leave them out of your chores. 

For more intense stains mix a mild soap or oxygenated detergent and gently scrub small areas at a time with a microfiber cloth, then wipe away quickly. Before applying soap and water, remove all loose dust by vacuuming or dusting. Also, you will have to perform a spot test in a small corner to make sure the soap and water will not wear out the material.
