Caring for Your Shutters

- Avoid using abrasive cleaners on your shutters, regardless of the material
from which they are made. Harsh cleaners can damage your shutters, causing
discoloration, cracks, or other cosmetic issues.
- The best supplies for cleaning faux wood or vinyl shutters include a solution
of warm water and dish soap and soft microfiber towels. Rinse away any
soap with a second cloth dipped in clean water; if your home has hard
water, use bottled or distilled water to avoid leaving water marks on
your shutters when you are finished.
- If you have real wood shutters, don't use water to clean them. Instead,
use an appropriate wood polish solution and a dry cloth for dusting and
cleaning. For stubborn stains, a soft cleaning toothbrush can be used
to scrub away dirt.
- Dust your shutters once a week using your vacuum cleaner with a soft brush
attachment. Tilt the slats up and run the hose over them to remove dust,
then tilt them down and repeat.
