Q: How do I clean my Pleated Shades?
A: Clean your pleated shades by frequent vacuuming to remove dust and airborne dirt. You may spot clean using a mild detergent such as Ivory and water and only clean the spot that is dirty by gently rubbing and removing the solution. DO NOT SOAK the pleated shade as excessive moisture will cause pleat retention failure. Ultrasound cleaning immerses the shade in solution so we do not recommend it. Dry cleaning is also not recommended due to variances in methods.
