How do I wash my curtains?
We understand all too well that you look up to the enormous ironing job afterwards. How nice would it be if you could take curtains out of the washing machine wrinkle-free? With these 5 tips you can get pretty close to those wrinkle-free curtains:
1. Read the washing instructions
Curtains are often not cheap, so it would be a shame if you ruined them by washing them on your regular washing program. If necessary, remove the curtain hooks and read the label with washing instructions. If the labels are no longer on your curtains, wash them at thirty degrees just to be on the safe side. This way you can be sure that they won't come out of the washing machine four times smaller.
2. Use mild detergents
Fill the washing machine to about one-third of its maximum allowable weight. That way, your curtains have more room to move, which prevents unnecessary creases. Use little detergent and fabric softener and always choose the mildest variant. This way you prevent the fabric from going on!
3. Use the dryer on a short program
Spinning often damages the fibers and fabric and causes the most creases in the washing process. Try to avoid this. For wrinkle-free curtains, it is best to spin at a maximum of 600 rpm. Do you have curtains made of a thin fabric? Then turn off the spin cycle completely.
4. Hang curtains wet
If you don't spin your curtains, they will come out of the washing machine soaking wet. Don't be alarmed by this, this is precisely the intention. Carefully remove the curtains from the washing machine and hang them back in place immediately. Don't forget to hang them in the fold first and put a bucket under them so they can drain. The weight of the water pulls the fabric taut, preventing wrinkles. Tip: also open a door or window so that the water can evaporate.
5. Use a steamer to remove the wrinkles
