Give your window treatments a thorough spring clean with our simple tutorial.
The return of spring sunshine is one of the best things about the season, but when the sun is pouring through your windows, dust and dirt on window treatments can become more obvious. Give your blinds and curtains a thorough clean with our complete guide.
Some fabric window treatments, like cotton curtain panels, are machine washable. Many fabric shades or custom-made drapes are not. First, check the tag for care instructions. If they’re washable, follow the instructions on the tag, wash and rehang them.
For styles or fabric types that can’t easily be laundered, start by removing dust and hair with a vacuum tool or lint roller. If the curtains aren’t difficult to detach, you can even take them outside and shake them like a rug. After removing dust, spray them with Febreze FABRIC to clean away odors or stale smells.
If dirt and grime have been building up on your blinds all winter, it may be time to give them a deep clean. Pick a day with good weather and enjoy some sunshine while you follow these simple steps for cleaning metal and plastic blinds outside.
Use this guide for metal and plastic blinds only. Wetting wooden blinds can cause warping and discoloration.
