Window drapes are an important element of your home décor and you should ensure that they are cleaned and maintained on a regular basis. Your ready made eyelet curtains will look better and last longer if you pay special attention to cleaning them. Cleaning them will also aid in eradicating any germs and lilt that may have built up which can cause harm to those living in the home in particular those who are prone to allergic reactions. Following a few simple steps will leave your draperies looking bright and vibrant.

You will first need to remove them from the wall hangers they have been positioned onto, this should be performed with great care to ensure that no damage is caused to the fabric. Shake down your curtains to remove any excess dirt, if you have a vacuum brush you can get the excess dirt off before taking them down from the hooks. You can now place them into the washing machine without any other fabrics. Once the curtains have been washed do not put them into a drier as this can cause the fabric to shrink. When they are partially dry lay them out flat and iron them to reduce the appearance of water marks.

You can also hand wash them by filling the bathtub up with water adding some detergent and letting them soak for a few minutes. Avoid rubbing the fabric too hard to avoid any type of damage. If you do not feel comfortable washing your own ready made eyelet curtains you can take them to the drycleaners to ensure that they are washed properly.

You said that we need to shake down the curtains so that we can get rid of excess dirt. If I was going to get new curtains I would want to make sure that I could take care of them. It could help me to ask a professional for assistance when I am trying to learn about taking care of fabric for my curtains.

Thanks for advice re washing this one of curtains. Could you, however, advise re the metal eyelets? I would have thought that there will still be some water inside the eyelets which would drip, possibly leaving rust marks?
Hope you can help with this. Thank you.
