3 Different Methods To Clean Your Curtains

The method you use to clean your curtains will vary based on the material, you have a few different options. You can steam clean, hand-wash or throw them in the washing machine.

Steam Cleaning

Cleaning your curtains with a quality steam cleaner is definitely one of the most convenient ways to clean them, as you wouldn't even have to take them down off the rods. Great for curtains made out of heavy material. Just run the steam cleaner from Top to Bottom. If you are using this method and notice the curtain material is becoming wet, try moving the steam cleaner back some. Please keep safety in mind, steam is hot! So be sure to wear protective clothing and use caution.


Hand-washing curtains is one of the safest ways to get your curtains clean, but can also be the most time consuming. Best for delicate, light material and curtains that are 100 percent cotton. You can use soap that is specifically formulated for hand washing delicate materials or you can use regular laundry soap. Be sure to check instructions because different materials will require different concentrations of soap.

Washing Machine

The easiest And Simplest option would definitely be the washing machine! Regular Laundry detergent is fine to use and just be sure to use a ‘delicate' cycle if your washing machine has one. Water temperature should be set to cool, especially is the curtains are 100 percent cotton, as hot water would shrink them. If your washing machine does not have a delicate cycle, see if there is an option for a slower spin cycle.

When it comes to drying you curtains, putting them in the dryer sounds tempting, but it not advised. Allow to air dry, hang outside if possible.
