Dust the Curtains
A good way to prolong the life of your curtains and keep its quality is to remove dust and dirt regularly. You should do this once a week, but also note that some curtains are light and delicate. Make sure that you don’t damage them.
Just as we stated earlier on you need to be mindful of your curtains quality so you don’t damage them thinking you are cleaning it. Materials like lace or sheer curtains will get damaged if thrown directly into a washing machine. The best way to clean materials like this is to softly handwash them to avoid fraying the fabric. IF you still want to use washing machine, you can throw the curtains in a mesh bag and wash.
Hand Washing Curtains
Unfortunately not all curtains can be cleaned with a washing machine. So, if you re washing with hand, make use of gentle detergent and avoid bleaching agents. Be certain the detergent has fully dissolved before putting the curtains in the water. Consult the care label for specific instructions about cleaning your drapes. After washing, leave them slightly damp so the creases don't set.
Machine Washing Curtains
Before you wash any curtain with machine, make sure you check the label before you do. The last thing you want to do is ruin the curtain by not closely following the instructions. Of course don't forget to remove any metal fittings or hooks before you wash the curtains.
This is the last option and the most professional option. There are some curtains that cant be machine washed or hand washed. Dry clean only instructions should be carried out exactly as stated, else you risk ruining the curtains. You should find a professional dry cleaner, where they understand the delicacy of dealing with curtains.
Make time also to clean your windows so that you can see the effect of all the hard work done. Put them back up and pat yourself on the back and admire.
