Published October 4, 2023

Inside window shutters can be a bit of a pain to clean, but it’s important to do so regularly in order to keep them looking their best and to prevent the buildup of dust and dirt. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to clean inside window shutters:

  1. Remove the shutters from the window. This is usually a simple process, but it may vary depending on the type of shutter you have.
  2. Vacuum the shutters. Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to remove any dust and dirt from the shutters.
  3. Wipe down the shutters with a damp cloth. Use a mild soap and water solution to wipe down the shutters. Be sure to rinse the shutters thoroughly with water after cleaning them.
  4. Dry the shutters with a clean cloth. Once the shutters are clean, dry them off with a clean cloth.
  5. Rehang the shutters on the window.

Here are some additional tips for cleaning inside window shutters:

  • If the shutters are very dirty, you may need to use a stronger cleaning solution. Be sure to test the cleaning solution in an inconspicuous area of the shutters first to make sure that it doesn’t damage the finish.
  • Be careful not to over-wet the shutters, as this can cause them to warp.
  • If you have wood shutters, be sure to use a wood polish or sealant to protect them after cleaning them.
