Our vertical blinds are 108 inches top to bottom. Mine needed cleaning really bad since DH is doing a lot of painting in the house. I couldn't take them outside and use the hose, because the complex had to shut off hose supplies for a while due to frozen outside pipes.
I put the slats a few at a time in my bath tub with dish liquid. I sloshed them around a bit, then I wrapped a wet micro fiber cloth around one end and pulled each slat through. I held the cloth with the blind in it against the side of the tub to allow the water to run back into the tub. I just had to put the end of the clean slat back in the tub to start the end through the bath towel which I put on my lap (I'm sitting on the toilet all this time). I pulled each slat through the folded bath towel to dry and draped them across the top of the two hampers in the vanity area.
I can't submit photos because I look horrid when cleaning. I hope this helps someone.

Mine are verticals on an over sized patio door.... 108" top to bottom. If I had mini blinds I would toss them in the bath tub in hot bleach water too.
Sweetie, it sounds like a great idea but this is for people that have never had any problems with their back or legs. I'm 53yrs. old and I have had back problems for many years..matter of fact I just had surgery on July 8th but even before my surgery I just can't see this possible for me. Linda
