Washing Curtains Tips

Washing Curtains Tips

Curtains in sitting room or bedroom can be washed or cleaned once a year. Generally, the best time to do this is as part of the spring cleaning, expecially if you are planning to wash them – it is easier to dry them on a breezy day.

Kitchen and bathroom curtains, which get dirtier, will need to be cleaned more frequently. If you have fabric pelmets, swags or tiebacks, wash or clean them at the same time as the curtains so that one component does not look cleaner or more faded than another.

Always choose a washable fabric for kitchens or bathrooms. When buying curtain fabric, check that it is pre-shrunk. Otherwise, allow 10% extra for shrinkage. Check with the shop assistant when buying, or consult the care label on ready-made curtains before washing.

Mold removal is essential whenever you find the presence of mold in your home. Unfortunately, many people don’t understand what mold is or why it is a problem so fail to take proper precautions.

Removing Candle Wax From Carpets

Removing Candle Wax From Carpets

Everybody loves candles these days. Whether you use them for atmosphere, aromatherapy, or as a fragrant compliment to the holiday season, candles provide a note of welcome and comfort any occasion. Unfortunately, accidents sometimes happen with dripping wax. To prevent wax spills in the first place, you can purchase glass discs that fit over tapers. But if the spill has already occurred, here is a quick and easy method for removing wax from candles and fabrics without harming them.

You will need paper towels and an electric iron. We recommend a very absorbent paper towel for the best results. Use white towels only as dyes may bleed onto the carpet when exposed to the heat of the iron. Before beginning the procedure, use a brush or your hands to pick away at any of the excess wax that you can get out of the carpet fiber. Be gentle and be careful not to unravel the pile when brushing.
