Taking down the curtains to clean is not one of my favorite household jobs to do. But at least it is not like years ago when we had the fancy, heavy window treatments:
That really wasn’t that long ago was it?
I like taking ideas on how to clean quick and easy and try it out. One trick I have learned that does make getting those curtains done without washing or dry cleaning, is to put one panel at a time in the dryer with an old, dry terry cloth towel. The towel will absorb the grime released in the tumbling action. Set it on for 30 minutes on air fluff—no heat cycle. Remove immediately and hang. One extra step I have included is to throw in a dryer sheet for added scent.
Your window treatments will be fresh and clean! And a fraction of the cost of dry cleaning. Has anyone else use this cleaning method? Love to hear any other shortcuts you use to get your house clean!
