The best way to clean louvres
The first step is to spray inside the left and right of frames, then wipe them over with a microfibre cloth.
Then spray the tops and bottoms of the louvre glass, scrub with a trickett or using some sort of soft sponge. We like to clean around four louvres blades at a time. Any more than this in summer and you’ll be left with a hazy mess that’s even harder to get off.
Use a microfibre towel to wipe all excess suds from both sides of each louvre blade. Just a simple wipe from right to left across the top, then left to right underneath should do. Also wipe the plastic fittings at each end.
Lastly, you’ll need to polish each blade with a lint free cloth / towel.
