Cleaning Pleated Fabric Shades

Does anyone know a way to clean the horizontally pleated fabric shades? They are so expensive to have cleaned, but I am afraid the pleats will come out if I clean them myself. My 87 yr old mother is unable to do them herself and I would like to try. They are not the honeycomb kind.

I think I would place them in the shower or hose them gently outside, kinda like cleaning mini blinds. I have never done this tho. so it's just an idea. Good luck!
