Some of you might think that curtains do not easily get dirty. Well, if you are using a dark-coloured curtain, you won’t really notice that it is already dirty unless you touch it, but what if you are using a light-coloured curtain inside the house? Do you have to clean it on a regular basis?
If you are having troubles on how to clean your curtains or you do not know the number of times you have to wash it on a weekly or a monthly basis, here are some of the simple tips that you can follow.
If you always want your curtains to be cleaned every week, you don’t have to wash them on a weekly basis. It will put a lot of strain in your body and it is not really advisable to wash them weekly as the colour will fade over time.
Instead of washing it, simply use an upholstery brush attachment on your vacuum and remove the dust from the curtain. Emergency washes can be done as well, but it is only advisable if your curtains were stained. This is how most of the people in the United Kingdom clean their curtains.
Washing the Curtains
The type of cloth used to manufacture the curtains is very important when it comes to washing. If you don’t have any idea how to wash the curtains, just look for the care label and you will easily know the proper washing of the curtains. Make sure to follow these instructions because it is the proper way of washing the curtains to prevent damages.

Most of the curtains can be washed with cold water, but there are a few with a special exemption where you have to use warm water.
Drying the Curtains
Drying your curtains is a bit different when drying your clothes. As you all know, clothes are usually dried 100% before they are taken out of the dryer. However, curtains are different because they still need to be a bit damp when you take them out. Over drying your curtains will only cause it to wrinkle. All you need to do is to remove the curtains while they are still damp and iron them until they dry out.
There are other tips that you need to know when it comes to the accessories of your curtains. Some of them should be hand washed and some of them can be placed on your washing machine.

You need to be very careful with your curtains if you are hanging them outside instead of using a dryer. Some cloths are very sensitive to sunlight and they may end up being damaged if you are not careful.
