Gentle dusting with an extremely soft cloth or feather duster once or twice a week is enough.
Hand dusting is the most basic method to cleaning drapery.
At the same time, you might have to be a little careful here, especially if your drapery is particularly delicate.
For drapes with a slightly thicker weave, soft-brush vacuuming is recommended.
This is done by attaching a soft bristle vacuum brush attachment on the mouth of your device.
Stick with a moderate setting and gently comb the entire length of your drapes vertically from top to bottom.
Damp-Cloth & Detergent Spot Cleaning
If you get done with the hand dusting or vacuuming and find that there are spots, stains or other blemishes on your drapes, a gentle dab with a cloth soaked in cold water should do.
If, however, the stain in question is of a MP particularly stubborn nature, you may use regular washing detergent to dab and clear the same.
Just make sure that the colors on the fabric of your drapes are not sensitive and don’t fade or run with the use of detergent.
There are professionals out there who specialize in cleaning drapery and other fabrics.
You can even check with the local dry cleaning service to see if they offer the same.
Having your drapery professionally laundered once or twice a year depending on how soon they are soiled, is usually a good idea!
If you follow the instructions above and purchase your drapes from a reliable vendor, chances are they will look great and serve their designated purpose for a long time!
