Some things are easy to clean, other things can be more tricky. Here are a few tips to help with these "less-than-easy-to-clean" items.
Leather Upholstery/Furniture - This can be wiped down with a mild soap like Woolite. Don't use dish soap. You can use rubbing alcohol or lemon juice to remove ink or stubborn stains and hide scratches with a leather cream. Also, it's good to spray with a protective coating when you are done!
Baskets - These just need a gentle cloth or brush to get the dust off. If there is mold, dip the soft brush in soapy water and scrub gently. Don't use bleach and don't soak the basket. It can damage it and cause it to swell.
Blinds & Window Treatments - With blinds, just vacuum with a brush attachment to get the dust off. Don't use a spray glass cleaner on blinds and shades because it will stain. With window treatments, read the manufacturer's instructions. They may need to be dry cleaned or they may never look the same again.
Ceiling Fans/Chandeliers - With a ceiling fan, use an old pillow case to collect the dust, then you can wipe them with some mild soapy water or a cleaning solution. For chandeliers, be extra careful. Remove dust with a soft cloth and use soapy water or glass cleaner on some surfaces. If there are fabric shades, remove and use a vacuum attachment to carefully suck the dust away!
