Time to clean curtains

Spring is a good time to clean your curtains.

Look at the hem of your curtains for the cleaning instructions or follow the instructions below:

  1. Remove plastic hooks before putting the curtains in the washing machine.
  2. Either gently vacuum with appropriate attachment or machine wash on a gentle cycle set up to 40 degrees Celsius.
  3. Drip-dry in the shade, iron with a cool iron and replace hooks.

Steps to clean curtains


If you can manage it, airing your bed mattress outside in the sun is good too.

Use the sun to your advantage – shake out your rugs, blankets, duvets and pillows, and leave them in the sun to air them. Some people say the sun is a natural disinfectant – a couple of hours outside and everything smells clean and fresh.

Remove the debris, rake dead leaves and twigs, prune and trim. If you’re planning a garden, now is the time to start planting.
