I have Levor honeycomb type shades. They have a streak across the bottom. Looks a little like rust, but after close investigation it is only from condensation. (Tip: always keep them just off the window sill lest it happen to you.) Any suggestions how to clean? I've check the manufacturers site. They say never to clean them, only wipe with a clean cloth. Shall I say 'cover your but' with that comment. Any natural ideas?

Baking soda.... dissolve some baking soda in warm water. Take a clean cloth the same color as the blinds (or white if you dont have one the same color) and dip a corner into the water and rub the blinds gently. Might take some elbow grease, but it should work!

If I soaked them like that I would probably get rust from the top & bottom rails. They are fabric & if you look at them from the sides they look like a honeycomb. Similar to pleated. They were $$ so I don't want to screw them up worse. Help someone?

I am not sure what type of blinds those are, i always put mine in the tub and let them soak. Or maybe a tooth brush might work...a damp one. I dunno I'm sorry I wish I could help better :( good luck
