When it comes to net curtains, you’d be surprised at how much dust and dirt these handy coverings can hold. Unsurprisingly, net curtains can accumulate a great deal of dust and dirt over time; they not only capture dust and debris coming through the window from outside, but also come into contact with our hands as we open and close them. Net curtains will need an occasional wash to restore the colour and quality of the material. However, what many of us are unsure of is exactly how to wash net curtains safely and effectively. For those of you who are struggling with this, worry no longer: we’ve written a simple step-by-step guide to getting your net curtains smelling fresh and looking spotless!
How to Clean Net Curtains
1. Remove your curtains from the window
Carefully remove the rod from the wall and slide the curtain off the rod.
2. Pre-treat any stains
Certain stains can prove to be rather resistant to a regular wash, so it is best to pre-treat any stains when washing net curtains. Some quality laundry brands, such as OMO, offer liquid detergents that are easy to use as a pre-treatment and usually deliver fantastic results. Always check and follow the instructions on the label of your chosen product before application to ensure that this method is suitable, and test a small inconspicuous area first. Apply your chosen product onto the stain, making sure you also apply a little onto the reverse side of the stain. Never rub the curtain together in attempt to remove the stain, as this will cause the mark to spread further.
