On the straight and narrow

I love my venetian blinds – I have them at almost every window in my home – but I hate cleaning them as it so fiddly! So you can imagine how pleased I was to find this nifty gadget. The Home Valet Microfibre Blind Cleaner has three arched spines, which you just slip between the slats and wipe away the dust. Brilliant value at £3.99, from Robert Dyas stores.
