Cleaning And Maintaining Living Room Curtain

The easiest way to clean your Living Room Curtain without taking them down is to simply vacuum them as often as you can. Use your vacuum cleaner to remove loose dirt, dust and even pet hair. The soft brush attachment is great for gently vacuuming hanging curtains from top to bottom. You can do this as often as you like. Also, it’s a perfect option for a quick once-over clean before any expectant guests arrive.

Another way to give your curtains a quick clean without the need to take them down is just to give them a good shake. This will help to remove dust and debris. This solution is good only if the curtains are not very dirty and are at the very least a little bit clean. If dirt has built up on them however a deeper cleaning is needed. The trouble with using chemicals for deep cleaning is just that such cleaning leads to potential harm to the material that has been used to make these curtains. If a curtain is very expensive or using a high end material you do not want it to end up being cleaned with a harsh chemical. 

How to Clean Blockout living room curtain

A steam clean can help in sprucing up blackout curtains and bringing them back to life. This quick and easy method also means you don’t have to take the curtains down to clean them, which will save you a lot of hassle. To achieve the best result, work from the top to the bottom of hanging curtains and keep the steamer far enough away that the curtains don’t become wet.

Cleaning and maintaining living room curtain

If your curtain has a lining, as many blockout curtains do, then hang your curtains outside and gently sponge clean them with mild detergent. Remember to rinse with cold water and leave to try. Make sure the back of the curtain is hanging freely and not leaning up against anything. Also, don’t fold them as this will lead the curtain to crease.

It’s important to remember to allow curtains to dry naturally. Hang them outside, but try to keep the curtains out of direct sunlight, as this can lead to fading. Do not put your blackout curtains in the dryer, and always check the care instructions for specific requirements prior to washing or cleaning.

How to Clean & Wash Sheer Living Room Curtain

When it comes to clearing dust and debris off your custom sheer curtains, the easiest way to do this is to lightly bunch the curtains up and give them a gentle shake. This is very effective and should be standard now and then to make sure that the material does not get dirtied to the point that a more forceful cleaning intervention becomes the only option. 

If you see any blots and marks on your sheer curtains, you can use water and a mild detergent. Use a nice wet sponge to clean the stain, then dab with white wine vinegar. Alternate between dabbing with the sponge and vinegar until the stain has lifted, and remember to do a spot check first. To dry the curtains, simply let them hang in the breeze under the shade, this will help them dry and freshen up any lingering odours.

When it comes to washing your sheer curtains – a light hand wash can do the trick. Hand washing can also help in removing any mould spots from your curtains. Before washing, be sure to remove all hooks, wands and rings, and use a gentle detergent.
