To dust your blinds, you can either use a special brush designed for that purpose or a standard vacuum brush. Begin by lowering the blinds, then dust the slats while they're facing downward.
Bathtubs and showers
A major problem in tubs and showers is mildew, and the best way to handle it is to prevent it from ever forming. To do this, clean the area with a disinfectant cleaner or special mildew product once a week.
