Put the sock on one of your hands like a glove and dip the toe end into the mixture. Squeeze away any excess water. You want your sock damp but not dripping wet.

Use the sock to run along both the top and bottom of each rung simultaneously on the blinds. Squeeze each one of the blinds in between your fingers and thumb. Your thumb should run along with bottom of the rung and your fingers across the top. Move from one side to another to wipe away any dust and dirt. The task goes pretty quickly when cleaning both sides at one time. Rinse the sock in your vinegar and water mixture as needed. Remember to remove excess water before cleaning. Keep repeating until you have cleaned your blinds from top to bottom.
