Follow this step-by-step process for washing and maintaining your curtains’ freshness and shine.


Washing

Step 1:

Remove the curtains and make sure there isn’t any hardware attached to it. Now lay it on a flat surface.

Use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of excess dust and dirt.

Step 3:

Check the manufacturer’s label to determine the cleaning method.

Air dry your curtains. Do not keep them under direct sunlight or heat.

Send your curtains for dry cleaning once in 6 months

Step 2:

Run them through a dryer once a month to remove dirt and dust. Use the "no heat" setting and dry your drapes for 10 minutes.
