Care & Cleaning
Dusting Dust your blinds regularly using an ordinary soft, clean cloth, chemically-treated dust cloth or mitt, feather-like duster, or cylindrical dust brush specially designed for blinds.
Vacuuming For deeper cleaning, vacuum gently with a brush attachment.
Compressed Air/Hair Dryer Use a can of compressed air or a handheld hair dryer on the COOL setting to blow off dust and debris.
Spot Cleaning Use a soft cloth or sponge moistened with lukewarm water and mild detergent if needed. DO NOT use hot water. Place toweling on the floor or sill and wipe the blind in sections.
Aligning Your Blind: After the blind is installed, tilt it open, then raise and lower it several times. This will allow the cords and slats to align themselves.
Tilting The Slats: Pull down on either one of the tilt cords or twist the tilt wand until slats reach the desired position.
Raising Your Blind: Ensure slats are in the open position, then pull the lift cord downward until the blind reaches the desired height. Release the cord and the blind will automatically lock into place.
Lowering Your Blind: Gently pull the cord toward the center of the blind until the lock releases. Let the cord slip slowly through your fingers until the blind reaches the desired height. Move the cord toward the outside of the blind and release. The blind will automatically lock into place.
Tilting The Slats: Pull on one of two tilt cords to rotate slats forwards or backwards. Or rotate the wand tilter (if ordered) to rotate slats forwards and backwards.
Raising and Lowering Your Blind: Tilt the slats to the open position (flat and parallel to headrail). Hold the center portion of the bottom rail to ensure level movement. Lower the blind by gently pulling downward to the desired position. Raise the blind by gently pushing upward to the desired position.
Reassembly of Cord Collector (Stop Ball Assembly) The cord connector, or stop ball, is a child safety device designed to come apart with moderate force. Reinsert any loose cords into the top notches of the cord stop. There is a notch on each side. Line up the right and left sides of the cord stop and snap the pieces back together.
