The curtains use a large amount of cloth and it is impossible to prepare many sets. Therefore, be more careful when using and cleaning to avoid damaging the cloth.

Should I wash new curtains?

New curtains must be washed. Because formaldehyde is added to the curtain fabric during the production process, in order to reduce the harm of formaldehyde, the newly bought curtains must be soaked and washed in water to reduce the formaldehyde content on the curtains.

The curtains that have been hung for a long time are contaminated by dust and need to be cleaned. The following cleaning methods will help you a bit. Curtains made of ordinary fabrics can be scrubbed with a damp cloth, or they can be cleaned in clean water or in a washing machine according to the usual method, using neutral detergent. Fabrics that are easy to shrink should be dry cleaned as much as possible. It is inconvenient to contact the seller to enlarge the size and ironing.

Canvas or hemp curtains are difficult to dry after washing, so they should not be washed directly in water. It is advisable to wipe them back and forth with a sponge dipped in warm water or soap solution, and then roll it up after drying. The curtain heads and curtains are soaked with clean water, and then washed with warm water added with soda, and then washed twice with mild detergent water or soapy water. Knead gently when washing, and rinse with water at the end. It needs to be cleaned up and placed on a clean table or frame.

If the velvet curtains are dirty, soak the curtains in a neutral cleaning liquid, press lightly with your hands, wash them, and place them on the inclined shelf to allow the water to drip dry automatically.

Electrostatic flocking fabric curtains (shading fabrics) are not easy to get dirty and do not need to be cleaned frequently. But if you do not soak it in water to rub or scrub it, just use cotton gauze dipped in alcohol or gasoline and wipe it gently. If the flannel is too wet, do not twist it forcefully to prevent the fluff from falling off and affecting the appearance. The correct cleaning method should be to use both hands to remove the water or let it dry naturally, so that the appearance of the flocking fabric can be maintained.
