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.
