Vacuum drapes weekly with the brush attachment to prevent dust build up. Use a gentle, up and down sweeping motion.
Because you see them every day, it is easy to not notice gradual fading and soiling of curtains and drapes. They may look fine, but if you haven’t had them professionally cleaned in a while, you will see the difference. Fabrics cleaned with the GreenEarth process actually come out looking brighter than before.
Drapes and curtains generally have care labels. If it is labeled machine-washable, go ahead, but if it doesn’t fit comfortably in your washer, take it to a professional for a thorough cleaning that won’t leave it wrinkled or linty like your washing machine will.
If your windows develop condensation on the inside, check the back of your drapes regularly for any signs of mildew.
