Care & Cleaning
Honeycomb Shades are 100% polyester and are treated to help resist dust, dirt, and stains.
Dusting Dust your shades regularly using an ordinary soft, clean cloth, dust cloth or mitt, feather-like duster, or cylindrical dust brush specially designed for shades.
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. Blot gently to avoid creasing or damaging the fabric.
Ultrasonic Cleaning Professional ultrasonic cleaning is recommended for most, but not all, Honeycomb fabrics. DO NOT USE with any Blackout fabrics.
Injection/Extraction Cleaning This type of cleaning injects a cleaning solution into the fabric and immediately extracts the dirty solution. The service is typically performed in the home. Search online or consult your local Yellow Pages.
Standard Corded Shades
Raising Your Shade: Pull the cord toward the center of the shade (approximately 30° from vertical) until the lock is released. Continue pulling the cord at this angle until the shade reaches the desired position. To lock, move the cord back toward the edge of the shade and release.
Lowering Your Shade: Pull the cord toward the center of the shade (approximately 30° from vertical) until the lock is released. Let the cord slip slowly through your fingers until the shade reaches the desired position. To lock, move the cord back to the edge of the shade.
Cordless Lift Shades
Firmly grasp the handle or center of the bottom rail, then lift or lower the shade to the desired position.
Grasp the handle on the side rail and pull the shade back and forth across the window.
Relaxing a New Shade
Pull the shade into the full down position. Use both hands to gently stretch the fabric. Pull evenly on each side. Leave the shade in the full down position for 24 hours.
Removing a Cell Shade
- If your shade simply opens from the bottom up, then raise the shade to the full up position.
- If your shade opens from the bottom up and from the top down, then move the middle rail to a position in the middle of the window.
Gently pry off the head rail with a flat screwdriver as shown in the picture below.
Re-Installing a Cell Shade
Position head rail at an angle so that it is hooked to the front of the bracket. Then push it upward to snap in the bracket.
