Removing Burn Marks on Wood Blinds

I let my candle burn for quite a few hours and it left candle burn marks on the bottom of my blinds. Is there any way of getting the burn marks out of the blinds?

You didnt say what material the blinds are made from, but if they are the metal, or plastic type, maybe even a light wood, I would try a magic eraser. Not sure, but those seem to clean really tough stains. Hope this will help

The problem with trying to remove a few stains from blinds may mean you will have to clean the entire blind as the area you clean will probably look "lighter/brighter" than the rest of the blind.

  • If it is just a small area you might be able to remove most of the marks with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (or generic eraser) as this will only be damp and should not harm the wood slats.

  • You might also try Isopropyl Alcohol either full strength or on a damp cloth.
  • Alcohol in a bowl of warm water is a good cleaner if you have to wipe down the entire blind.

You can lightly sand and stain it.

Try a dry cleaning sponge or Murphy's oil soap with a microfibre cloth.
