Always check the care label first before washing them. The last thing you want to do is ruin the drapes by not closely following the instructions. When you are washing curtains for the first time, be sure to check the suitability of the detergent being used. Test a small patch of the curtain with a mixture of water and the laundry detergent. The majority of washable curtains need to be cleaned with a gentle detergent and in cold water. Of course don’t forget to remove any metal fittings or hooks before you wash the drapes. You can line dry the curtains. A clothes dryer will work just as well, but make sure the settings are on low.
Lace or sheer curtains will get damaged if thrown directly into a washing machine. You have two good options for cleaning more delicate materials. You can simply hand wash them to avoid fraying the fabric. Alternatively, still use a washing machine but first seal the curtain in a mesh bag to protect it from damage.
Popular themes include rubber ducks, fish, sea shells, sail boats, balloons, clouds, or any simple patterned design. The background can be clear, so you can keep an eye on your children when they shower, or it can be an opaque shade. The advantage of vinyl and polyester curtains is that they keep the water inside the tub instead of it splashing onto the ground. Fabric shower curtains are permanent additions to the functions and décor of a bath room. Some are designed to match towels and bathmats. Some textiles have been treated with stain resistors and waterproof coatings to combat moisture, as they are more likely to absorb splashes. Hemp shower curtains provide the best of both worlds: cotton and vinyl, the heavy fabric is made of plant fiber like linen or cotton. However hemp is naturally antibacterial and anti fungal so it resists mildew and soap stains.
After the advent of the textile industry and weaving of fabrics, curtains became more common as more people could afford to buy curtains. To add to the beauty of curtains, different ways of hanging curtains were introduced. Curtains became much more elaborate and a number of new fabrics were introduced as curtain cloth. Curtains with floral designs were preferred in traditional curtain designs as they added some design and broke the monotony of plain walls. The different curtain hanging designs that were introduced in traditional curtains were again introduced to break the monotony of the curtains and to make the curtains look elegant and elaborate.
Large windows are most likely found in large rooms such as the bedroom or the living room. Choosing the curtains for these rooms will be determined by certain factors. Some rooms require more privacy than others do; others require more light and require sound absorption. The beauty value of the curtain should also be considered. Finally, before purchasing the curtains consider all the rooms in the house and their decorations. Sometimes it may be a good idea to consult an interior decoration expert.
