Cleaning day/night blinds

Hey ya'll,
We would like to clean our day/night blinds in our 2000, 30' AS Excella. Seems to me, it should be a pretty simple procedure to take them out, stretch them open, and wash them with a mild soap like Wool Lite, or something similar.
We did this to our curtains (twice), and it worked great. I don't think the people who sell the new curtains want to hear that though....
Any help or ideas are appreciated.

We washed ours with mild detergent and a little Oxyclean---absolutely ruined them and they had to be replaced--looked like weird camo. You might try a dry cleaning agent, like for carpets, that you apply and vacuum off, but I'm not sure. Could always call JC and ask them.

Since we got the new ones in, we have kept after them weekly with the little vacuum we keep in the RV.

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️
