How to Care for Linen Curtains

- Spraying clean water on the linen fabric should not damage your curtain or leave any spot, but it may shrink as it dries (before trying, check with your manufacturer for more information). Small creases can be removed by this process, but make sure to test on a small spot before you apply them on the main part. You can use a crease-release product too for this treatment.

Let the curtain dry at normal temperature and this will help to remove any remaining wrinkles from it.
- Use a garment steamer and fill it with distilled water. Then apply steam on the wrinkled areas, moving from the top of the curtain to the bottom. Try to use the steamer to both the front and back of the fabric.

- Machine or hand wash is not suggested for linen curtains. Instead, you can opt for professional dry cleaning. Call the experts and get the job done easily and smoothly.
