Shake it off
Take them down and give them a good shake. This will get rid of any dust or dirt that has accumulated on them. Be sure to be extra careful, especially depending on the fabric used to make your curtains. It is better to have another person assist while having your curtains cleaned.
If they’re not too dirty, then you can just vacuum them. Use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner and go over the curtains lightly. Using the vacuum option while cleaning your curtains will be considered a more efficient option. Keeping up with the cleaning of your curtains will not only save you time from doing deep cleanings but it’ll minimize the dust intake as well.
Deep Clean and Wash
If they’re quite dirty, no need to be frantic a simple wash will do just fine! You can either hand-wash them or machine-wash, depending on the fabric. It is important to receive all fabric material details from your designer before the job is finished to ensure you are able to clean them properly. Few fabrics are considered to be gentle and need extra care versus others. Just make sure to use a gentle detergent and don’t put them in the dryer afterward. Simply hang to dry and it does the job just right!
Following these simple tips, your curtains will be looking good as new in no time!
