Taking to social media, the hygienist revealed three easy steps she takes to give her blind a deep clean.

“First I started by going bushwalking,” she began in videotapes.

“Then I use a microfiber cloth to spray down with an all-purpose cleaner.

“And sliding along the slide, I clean both the top and the bottom,” she continued.

She finished by taking a clean damp microfiber cloth and gently wiping everything off.

“Look! It’s clean now,” she concluded.

Since the woman was demonstrating how to hack wooden blinds, some were curious if her clever hack would work on other types of blinds.

One user asked: “What about metal curtains with thin bars ???”

A second person asked: “How do you clean dusty bathroom plastic blinds with hairspray?”

Clean hacks and tips

Here are some tips to help you with your next house cleaning:

Others asked her to upload more cleaning hacks that could be used in other areas of the house.

“Make a video on how to clean the inside of the fridge! I have a dog and I clean it weekly, but can’t find a good way to get all the hair out,” a third begged.

And while you may have removed the cleanup trick, maybe you are still closing the blinds the wrong way.

A professional carpenter shared how to properly close the curtains to avoid being seen by anyone, especially for those living on the first floor.

“Never put your curtains face down,” he said.

“At night, with the lights on, you can see as clear as day.

“If someone tries to see through the curtain, all they can see is the ceiling of the room,” he explains.

For those on the second floor, experts recommend closing the door so people looking from below can’t see you.

And voila, she's done
