Finally! A use for that ultrasonic blind cleaner I picked up! heehee.

I'm not making fun Blind Dr, but just really damn impressed. I kinda wish I had day/nights and had problems just so I can try your suggestions. While on the topic, any tips for cleaning the typical miniblinds?

Man I feel like one of those guys who asks a doctor at a party "I have this ache right here, what do you think...."

Minis huh?

Actually I can offer you the same bedside advise I do for all my other patients. For a weekly cleaning use a swiffer. If you are interested in a deeper cleaning then fill up your tub with extremely hot water; 142 degrees plus. Add some TSP and stir it up. Then open the blind and place it in the water allow it to soak for 5-10 minutes. If you need to scrub use a soft sponge. Then close it up and turn it sideways to drain any water out of it. Take it outside and hang it up or set it on the ground, open, to dry. If you are a smoker you will need to scrub it a little and keep it in the solution longer.

Now don't forget to show your insurance card to the receptionist.....

Sounds like a plan.

Day Night Shades

I have been reading some of the comments about day night shades and they are pretty accurate for the most part. We have been repairing RV shades in Yuma, AZ, for 11 years. The main consideration when installing or adjusting these shades is the tension. You only need enough tension for the center or bottom rail to stay in place at any position. It is generally important to have the same tension on both sides for the shade to move level. It is also important to have the cords on a side to be the same length to prevent a gap between the center and bottom rail.
The shades can be cleaned using a mild clear detergent such as Ivory or Woolite and be sure to use a white cloth. You can even remove the shade and immerse it in the bathtub. If you rub the fabric, do it gently.
Our web site, atozwindowfashions.com, has more information on the RV window shades. It has repair materials available and FAQ's. Please contact us for more specific information.
