Use the brush attachment (the one with the long, soft bristles) on your vacuum cleaner and the brush will loosen the dust and the vacuum will suck it away.

Alternately, you could buy a counter brush (aka a bench brush aka a dust brush) and simply brush the dirt off the slats.

If it's a vinyl blind, just put it in the tub and turn on the shower. (Of course if it's a REALLY inexpensive blind, you could simply replace it, eh?)

Pleated Blinds can be tricky to clean. Ensure the blind is dusted frequently. A damp cloth maybe be used but take care to wring out the cloth before hand to loose any excess water. Additionally wipe over the fabric immediately after to remove any excess water to preventing staining.

Always test any cleaning method in a small section first, as all fabrics react differently to different cleaning methods.

It's perfectly safe to add your own touch to fabric window coverings by painting them with fabric paint. You can purchase fabric paint at any craft store.

The best way to clean window blinds depends on which type of blinds one has and how much buildup they have. If the buildup is minimal, simply dusting them or taking a lightly damp cloth to them will do. For fabric or vinyl blinds, one could use a dry sponge. For wood blinds a small amount of water may be used. If the blinds are metal, remove them and clean them outside.

I have found that bamboo blinds are easy to keep clean. You can actually take the whole blind down and immerse it in warm soapy water in your bathtub and then rinse. Hang them outside to dry and then hang them back up over your window.

A safe and inexpensive way to clean your blinds is to use some white vinegar - available in any grocery store - and an old sock or cotton glove. Simply dip the sock or glove in the vinegar and run it along the slats of the blind. Dust and dirt stick like magic, and you have clean blinds in next to no time at a very low cost.
