Roller blinds are very versatile and practical decorations for windows, but like any other object in homes, over time they can accumulate dust and dirt. Generally, classic roller blinds can be cleaned with a damp sponge and a bit of degreaser. This method obviously does not thoroughly clean the roller blinds and on the contrary may cause stains that are even more conspicuous. This is why we have created the first machine-washable roller blinds. View these innovative products here: www.vs-line.com
The washing in the washing machine allows a deeper cleaning of the fabric so as to eliminate all traces of dust and dirt, completely sanitizing the fabric. Here's how we wash our roller blinds.
Our special roller blinds can be washed both by hand and in the washing machine by choosing a fine wash program (30°) and using neutral detergents. Everything is true and tested a hundred times. At the same time, our fabrics are hardwearing and soft and have been treated to be washed in water without losing their shape or roll-up properties.
Some hints before washing your blinds:
On the opposite side of the control chain, grasp the toothed wheel and turn it until the pin inserted in the coupling has withdrawn, allowing the pipe to slip out of the coupling.
Grasp the toothed wheel and turn it until the pin inserted in the coupling has withdrawn, allowing the pipe to slip out of the coupling. If too difficult with your fingers you can also help with a flat screwdriver.
Remove the roller from the side connection, remove the roller blind from the opposite side where the control / chain is located.
Now completely unroll the fabric from the tube to the end of the fabric. When you see the PVC sheath, gently remove the fabric by pulling it outwards. Warning: check that the PVC sheath is well detached from the pipe, otherwise remove it by passing a finger under the sheath. Also pay attention to how the fabric was mounted on the tube - fabric behind the tube or in front of the tube.
Once the fabric has been removed from the tube, you are ready to put it in the washing machine.
Mount the fabric on the tube by inserting the sheath back onto the tube keeping in mind the correct direction - fabric front or back. The fabric remains behind the tube in the case of a roller blind fixed to a window. The fabric is in front of the tube in the case of a roller blind fixed to the wall or ceiling.
When the fabric is correctly inserted on the tube, roll the fabric onto the tube with your hands; this will facilitate assembly later and replace the chain control and the cap / pin in their place.
When the roller blind has been reassembled, you can put it back in the attachments, starting from the side of the chain and then going to the side of the cap / pin.
