Cleaning Recommendation

  • Dusting- To maintain the fresh appearance of your shade, with a light touch, dust regularly with a feather duster.
  • Vacuuming-Use a vacuum attachment for a deeper clean, being careful not to press too hard as to crease the fabric.
  • Spot Cleaning-Use warm water, mild detergent, and a non-abrasive cloth. Dab lightly or gently rub back and forth in the direction of the fabric pleats. Pat dry to remove excess water and leave the shade fully closed until completely dry.

Note: Dry cleaning, full immersion in water, strong detergents, or spot cleaners are not recommended.
