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.
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.
Some curtains require some lining at the back to make them thick. In this case, cut the lining material of the same length as the curtain fabric. Pin the two fabrics with their plain sides facing each other. Sew the two materials together at the border with a sewing machine. Fold the edges at least half an inch inwards along three sides and then hem sew it using the sewing machine. Only one of the shorter sides should be left unstitched. However if you want to add drapery weights on the bottom side of the curtain you should leave it unstitched too.
