Net curtains are an ever-popular household accessory for letting light in whilst obscuring the potential for those outside to see into your property. They can be very delicate however, so it can take great care to maintain them and keep them looking great. They can become dirty rather quickly and therefore unsightly, with blemishes becoming difficult to ignore. However, if you don’t take care when washing them you could find that you inadvertently cause damage to them. Wash them regularly and you should be able to enjoy them for years.
Treat them with care
When it comes to washing your net curtains, you’ll need to separate the curtains from the rods that they hang from. This is an easy step, and you simply need to slide them off the rods, a process that takes seconds. You may need to remove excessive dirt before the main washing process begins. Also, you may be able to reduce the appearance of stains beforehand by using a stain remover. This will mean that the chances of the net curtains being completely cleaned are more likely when the entire process is finished. Don’t be hasty however – it may take the stain remover a good ten minutes to penetrate the stained area. After this you’ll need to take your net curtains to the washing machine and choose a cycle designed for dealing with delicate garments. For white curtains, you should add around half a cupful of bleach to proceedings in order to maintain their appearance. For dark colours, it’s the same except with vinegar rather than bleach.
When the rinsing process begins, you should add fabric softener to the machine in order for the curtains to come out of the machine soft, flexible and pleasing to the touch. After this step is taken, you’re free to either hang the net curtains outside or to place them in the dryer. There’s no reason why net curtains shouldn’t be able to last you for a long period of time before they are replaced. The curtains show no signs of fading in popularity and when they are combined with lights and other decorations, the net curtains can play a part in a stunning home décor set-up.
