Curtains are a necessity in our home. In addition to their powerful functions, they are also important decorations in your home. Therefore, when shopping, they will choose some exquisite and beautiful styles to put in the room as a beautiful scenery.
However, even the beautiful and stain-resistant curtains will inevitably be old and dusty after hanging for a long time.
According to statistics, people who love to be particularly clean wash the curtains twice a year during the change of seasons; most people will wash the curtains once for general cleaning during the holidays. Of course, some wash them only once in a year or two, and some even the curtains at home may be moved to a new house. I haven't washed it since...
Basic curtain care in daily life: Use a feather duster to gently wipe the floating dust on the curtain every week, and use a vacuum cleaner to gently absorb the dust on the curtain every month.
Do not dry the curtains directly in the washing machine after cleaning. Please dehydrate them. When the curtains do not drip, take them out and hang them directly and let them air dry. The purpose of this is to keep the original texture, color and size of the curtains.
Directly dried curtains, the texture of the curtain fabric is easily damaged, and the beauty and feel of the curtain will be affected. When cleaning, put a little salt in the water, soak for 30 minutes, and then add laundry detergent for cleaning.
Do not use washing powder to wash directly. Nowadays, many washing powders contain a little bleach. Washing curtains directly with washing powder may cause the curtains to fade.
Curtains should not be cleaned frequently, because this will affect their original beauty, feel, texture, drape, warmth, shading and service life.
