Time to clean the curtains

Time to clean 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.

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.
