I guess we left our day/night shades in the down position too long, because the day shades have lost some of their pleats. What I mean is that when we lift the shade some places of the day portion of the shade don't fold properly. Does anyone know how to restore the pleats that aren't folding? I'm wondering if spray-on fabric sizing would add enough body back into the fabric. What do you think?

While down spray the blinds with spray starch. THen lift the blinds and let set for a day. This will restore the crisp pleats.

The spray starch technique was in my old Vectra's manual.
