1. Clean your curtains once per year. Check the manufacturers label first. Curtains can either be machine-washed, hand-washed or dry cleaned. If curtains can be machine-washed use the delicate cycle. Be gentle when drying curtains in a machine. Take them out straight away to prevent wrinkling, or hang them when they are slightly damp.
  2. Keeping your curtains free of dust is important for your health. Start at the top and work down. Be sure to clean the places where dusts tend to collect. These are normally the hems and tops. If possible, use the upholstery attachment and vacuum the matching pelmets at the same time.
