Love your curtains but do not know how to clean them?
Here are some simple tips you can follow.

Cleaning your curtains in the washing machine.

  • Remove hooks or rings from the curtain
  • Do not wash curtains with other personal clothing
  • Wash the curtains in a few batches depending on your washing machine capacity
  • Place the curtain in a laundry bag if possible
  • Use natural soap instead of detergent
  • No bleach is required
  • Select cool wash and low spin
  • Avoid direct sunlight when drying
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Hang curtain from clothesline using the curtain hooks for natural drying. Letting curtains dry naturally in a hanging position allows the creases to fall out, and a quick iron afterwards will have them looking like new.
  • When ironing, only iron on the fabric side at a low-medium heat. For best result, iron with a thin cloth/handkerchief in between the iron and the fabric – especially for day curtains* if you need to iron them
  • Blackout fabrics would need to be dry-cleaned.

Hand washing your curtains

  • Remove hooks or rings from the curtain
  • Do not wash curtains with other personal clothing
  • Use mild soap instead of detergent.
  • Avoid soaking, bleaching and wringing the fabric
  • Hand wash method is preferred for day/ sheer curtains
  • Hand washing your curtain reduces the risk of shrinkage and it’s a good choice for materials such as 100% cotton

Steam Cleaning your curtains

  • Vacuum your curtains with a soft brush attachment to remove dust and dirt before the steam clean process
  • Ensure that you read the manufacturer’s instruction before using the steam cleaner and make sure that you wear protective gloves/ clothing when operating the machine
  • Set the steam cleaner at a temperature suitable for fabric cleaning according to manufacturer’s guidelines
  • Start from the top and work your way down the curtain
  • If material is becoming wet, hold the appliance further away from the curtain
  • Once completed, allow the curtain to dry in the breeze for an hour or two.
  • Finish with a fabric freshener to make it smell clean and fresh.

Blinds are much easier to clean/maintain as compared to curtains.

Here’s how:

  • Dust the blinds with a static duster
  • For a deeper cleaning, gently vacuum the blind/ slats with a brush attachment
  • Spot cleaning to fabric blinds can be done by using a soft cloth or sponge moistened with lukewarm water. Add mild soap if needed. Blot gently
  • Avoid rubbing as this can cause crease or damage to the fabric.
  • For wood blinds, use wood preservative to clean as water might damage the wood
  • Aluminium venetian blinds can be cleaned with a soft damp cloth, wipe dry with a separate clean cloth thereafter
