Never fear, tuiss is here with a quick and easy guide on how to clean your shutters.

If you like to have a quick whip around your home on a weekly basis, make sure you include your shutters.

Giving them a quick dust down or even using an upholstery brush hoover attachment is a great way to keep them looking fresh and new.

Our plantation shutters are completely waterproof so getting a bucket full of soapy water and a cloth or sponge is a great way to give them a more thorough clean.

If you have them on the exterior of your house, you can even use a hosepipe to wash them down, before having a good sponging and rinsing them off again – it really is that simple!

If there are any more stubborn stains or if you want to really get in there and give your shutters the most thorough clean possible, you can use a scrubbing brush dipped in a soapy solution and scrub the stains away.

Using toothbrushes dipped in soapy water is also a great way to get into all the nooks and crannies for the deepest and best clean.



Whether it’s a dry down after cleaning or even if your bathroom shutters have been splashed as you’ve had a wash, you can dry them down quickly and easily using a nice clean, fluffy towel.
