Curtains tend to absorb smells from around the home, such as cooking aromas and cigarette smoke, which can leave the curtains smelling less than fresh and cause a slight discoloration. Curtain cleaning doesn’t have to be difficult, there are several easy ways to clean your curtains, and different curtain cleaners you can use. Here’s a quick, simple guide to the options available.

General Cleaning

Drapes and curtains face a lot of dirt, dust and sun exposure daily, all of which will break down the fibers and dyes in the material.

  • Before spot cleaning or washing curtains, check the manufacturer’s care instructions.
  • Start with the least invasive or potentially damaging cleaning option first.
  • Stretch the curtain flat, then use the brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner and lint roller to remove dust, debris or pet hair.
  • Some materials — like lined fabric — will be ruined by water, so consult the label before washing or dry cleaning.

Machine Washing

Curtains made from cotton, nylon or polyester can most likely be machine-washed without issue. Use the three-step method for proper cleaning:

  1. Spot treat any stains with a stain remover, gently rubbing it in with an old toothbrush
  2. Wash curtains in cold water on the delicate cycle, using a mild cold-water detergent intended for delicate fabrics
  3. Tumble dry on low heat, and then re-hang while still just barely damp

Tip: Press and iron cotton curtains before hanging. Nylon or polyester curtains or sheers will most likely not need ironing.

  1. Fill a utility sink with enough hot water to fully submerge the curtains
  2. Add 2 cups of lemon juice and mix well
  3. Soak the curtains for 1 hour, then squeeze out excess water and hang in bright sunlight to dry
  4. After they air dry, machine wash and tumble dry on low heat

Choosing Window Treatments

  1. Dark curtains will show more dust, while light or white curtains may look dingy sooner.
  2. Add a liner to curtains to help protect against sun damage.
