Cleaning pleated shades little help please

What are you all doing about cleaning the pleated shades in your coaches? The light colored day shades are dusty and not sure what is best way without creating a "mud" smear?? All ideas and suggestions appreciated.

Safe travels all

Take them down, dunk in a barrel of soapy water (laundry detergent is good), brush lightly with a soft brush or sponge, rinse them off and hang to dry. That's what we did, anyway.

I agree with Gary did the same thing with ours. Take them down mix up a batch of water with laundry detergent. Soak them then a good rinse then set out to dry layer out somewhat flat with the pleats not wrinkled or bunched up.
