Cleaning Plantation Shutters

It can be a hassle to keep your beautiful window shutters clean to your satisfaction. Don’t fear; we have some easy tips for applying to your cleaning routine. Dusting your window shutters once a month is a key to maintaining the upkeep. The exterior shutters can get dirty quickly, so proper regular cleaning and attention will decrease the amount of dust. You must imagine that dust will fall onto the slat beneath the top one, so ensure to start at the top of the window shutters and work your way down. Allowing the dust to fall and eventually just hit the floor, leaving your shutters looking new again. 

The window seal may also need some TLC (tender, love, and care). Wiping your window seal from dust build-up is vital in maintaining your shutters. 

Using A Damp Cloth
The dirt build-up around and on your window shutters may be more than you initially expected. No worries, using a damp clean cloth to wipe down the interior shutters will help tremendously. Use a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar with a dash of dish soap while wringing the fabric dry. Using a toothbrush will work wonders if you can’t seem to get into those cracks and hinges of the shutters.
