what kind of saw blade do I use to cut vinyl blinds?
I bought cheap vinyl mini blinds for my bedroom and they are 1/2 and inch too wide. They are not the ones Home Depot will trim so I want to ask my son to do it but I dont know what saw blade to use. I have seen them cut blinds there before so I know he can use his chop saw.

You can trim the blind themselves with a good scissor and the bottom and bigger piece at the top with a hacksaw.

align the blind carefully and use a hacksaw with a fairly new` blade. but why not just return them? I KNOW that the Depot will take them back with no hard time
Suggestion by me
I use my chop saw errr miter saw. (The big scary looking one you pull the handle down to make angle cuts in trim) Compact the shade…Put a rubber band on both sides where you want to have it cut so it does not wiggle and draw a marker line. Cut evenly left and right so the edges end up the same ( look at the hardware on top so you don’t cut through it) Take the little caps off the bottom and hold on to them. By putting 2 rows of tape or a rubber bands on the left and right the little plastic pieces don’t go flying all over. and the curtain stays straight. Takes 2 seconds to cut it down.
We have really odd windows here

Use a hacksaw with a fine tooth blade. To make things easier, make sure NOT to unravel the blinds before cutting. Mark off where you need to make the cut and wrap some masking tape tightly around the blinds near you marking. Then start trimming away with the hacksaw.
