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.

The first step to take when measuring for curtains is to start by measuring the width of the curtain pole or track this will then determine how long you would like your curtains to be. A curtain pole is a good indicator as to where the curtains will finish either at the seal length below the seal or touching right down to the floor we recommend as a rough guide that the curtains should finish 1.5 cm above the sale. If you would like your curtains to fall below the seal we recommend that they finished 15 cm below that if you want your curtains to flow from top to bottom from the rod to the floor we would then recommend a gap of 1.5 cm above the floor.

If you will be washing the curtains by hand, you could use the bath to have ample space. Make use of a gentle detergent which doesn’t contain bleaching agents and mix in cool water. Be certain the detergent has fully dissolved before putting the curtains in the water. The best hand washing method is to gently squeeze the curtains, and not apply excess pressure. Consult the care label for specific instructions about cleaning your drapes. After washing, the curtains will have some creases. A bit of ironing will get rid of the unwanted wrinkles. To make ironing easier, don’t fully dry the curtains. Leave them slightly damp so the creases don’t set. Once the curtains are dried and ironed, they are ready for hanging.

Electric curtains can be set to open and close at set times each day, giving the impression that someone is home.
