How to clean your curtains

Because curtains are made of woven fabric, and they spend large portions of the time folded into pleats, dust, pet hair and even mould gathers on them. Over time this builds up so even if they don’t look dirty, they’re not helping you keep a clean, healthy home, stirring up dust every time they move. Cleaning instructions for curtains differ depending on the fabrics used and whether they are lined or unlined so if yours have a cleaning instruction label, follow these directions. If not, here are our professional tips on curtain cleaning.

Curtains

Your custom-made curtains will be a little stiff having just come from our Nelson workroom, so getting them to sit correctly will take some manual adjustment for the first few weeks. The space between pleats at the top of the curtain will also need to be trained whenever they pop out of place, and it’s important to ensure everything is shaped nicely before putting your curtains into tiebacks or holdbacks.

How to clean

  • Use a low suction on your vacuum cleaner
  • Spot clean minor stains with a damp sponge or microfibre cloth
  • Do not machine wash or dry clean
