I got one of those magnetic (?) dusters in the cleaning section and it works great. It's blue and white and never needs cleaned. I'll find out what brand and let you know!

What I do is probably way to much work:) I first vacuum them (so I wont smear any dust) then I put 1 bleach wipe in each hand and wipe each one off. Then last I go over them with a clean wet rag. That is kind of embarresing:)hahaha

I have to admit that I haven't cleaned my blinds, but I desperately want to. I might have to follow Lacie's routine because my blinds are white. I'll have to check back for other ideas because I don't have any. Embarrasing I know!

Try the swifter dusters...they work well on all surfaces!

I have no clue!! I should go look at my blinds I'm sure they are pretty nasty!!!

i use a regular duster thing from wal mart-put on loud, good, house cleaning music, dust each blade real fast and look away before i can notice if it landed back on there and get busy doing something else lol

Let me know what works for you! I usually just do the swiffer duster, but the dust never seems to be completely gone!

Okay - just take them down lay them on the floor and clean on side with whatever cleaner works for you (plastic-409, wood pledge, etc.)
then flip it over and do the other side. They are usually pretty easy to take down. And for me it's the only way that actually gets them clean.
