Can you imagine a living room without curtains? How about a living room with dirty curtains?

Either way, these fabrics give your living room a sense of completeness. They are an important part of your home’s interior, so you will need to keep them clean and vibrant all throughout.

Here are a few tips that should help you along those lines.

 

1. Remove dust before washing

People tend to just throw the dusty curtains into a washing machine and let soap suds and water do their magic. However, this doesn’t guarantee a thorough clean. As a good rule of thumb, it’s always best to get rid of dust and other residues before you start washing.

 

2. Hand wash the curtains yourself

For curtains made from lighter material, you can simply soak them in a basin of warm water and detergent. Wait for about 30 minutes before handwashing. This is more effective as it helps you put more focus on stubborn stains.

 

3. Use a steamer

 To kill off any remaining dust mites and keep the material in the best possible condition, you might want to use a streamer on heavy curtains. A steam cleaner can help you clean the material on the spot. This means you won’t have to take the curtains down, hence saving you time and energy.

 

4. Dry away from sunlight

 Whether you tumble dry your curtains or not, it’s always best not to hang your curtains under direct sunlight. This should help prevent white spots from forming due to bleaching. For best results, you might want to consider ironing to get rid of any creases and wrinkles.

 

Cleaner curtains will certainly impress your visitors. With these tips in mind, you should be able to get a lot of praise for a good job with the interior.
