To clean venetian blinds. Fill bath tub with enough warm water to cover blind. Add equal amounts of Tide & Spic & Span. About 1/2 cup each.Soak blind for short time. Blinds & cords come out clean without any scrubbing. Rehang blind with towels on window sill till dry. There is no danger combining the two cleaning agents.
I'm cleaning very old and dirty blinds (with the wide slates and cloth tapes). Is it OK to add some bleach to the Tide and Spic and Span mix to bleach the tapes?
We load ours up and take them to the car wash. There is a place to hang them and we wash away the dirt very easy. Take the screen there too. Makes cleaning them easy...
These are great ideas...IF they are metal! So many of today's blinds are made of wooden slats. When I first started cleaning my landlord's house and he mentioned that he wanted the blinds cleaned, I asked him which bathroom tub he wanted me to use. He about had a heart attact. Sorry, I was out of the groove at the time and didn't know about 'wooden' slats.
When cleaning these slats, I just use a damp cloth and spray lightly with an orange cleaning solution...like Fantastick or Mr. Clean. Wipe down slats with the damp cloth and remember to wipe again with a DRY cloth.

MiniMaids! Just stick suction cup brackets to shower tiles, add your blinds, and easily rinse blinds clean with shower sprayer. If you need to spray with cleaner first thats OK, the detergent and the dirt just rinses down the drain. Finally a product that makes washing mini blinds EASY!
Very good advice. http://www.englishblinds.co.uk/
Taking the venetian blinds to the car wash is a super idea! You can use the soap brush and then blast wash them. Gonna do it this weekend. Thanks.
