Most days are fun, but then there are days when I want to wring her neck! It's like living with a very naughty 3 year old with great physical skills. She got into the neighbors RV and stole a brownie. I screamed at her to drop it! (She's diabetic) She ran to the hood of the truck shoving brownie in her mouth as fast as she could, dropping chunks of brownie in hopes that I would be satisfied with the chunks. She eventually ended up with a third of it. Everyone watching laughed and cheered for her. Sena got an extra half unit of insulin for that trick, but she was really pleased with herself.

If you are talking about the pleated day/night shades, then my answer is a resounding YES. We took all of our window trim down and washed the shades. Basically dipped them in a big garbage can full of soapy water (laundry detergent) and then hung them on a rack and brushed them down with a sponge and even a soft brush here and there. An incredible amount of dirty water ran down! Once the water ceased to be gray, we hosed them off and hung to dry. I ended up building a simple rack to do this, since we had 8 large windows to do. We did this outdoors after trying to do one in the shower at home. Far too unwieldy to do in our shower, plus we ended up with water everywhere! Outdoors on a rack was what worked for us. Each took several hours to dry even in sunny, breezy weather.

I don't know if that works on all brands and models of window shades - I'm sure some are better quality material than others. I would suggest trying one first and see how it goes, both to test the effects and to build up your technique.

Ouch! That could make for some sticky situations if you're not VERY careful.

Thanks for all of the helpful comments, and the funny ones, too! We spend the summer in my DD's backyard. I've added cleaning the shades to my summer to-do list. I might hit a few spots with the small portable cleaner we carry, now that I know they won't disintegrate.
