To clean your drapers, check your panels for a label and follow those instructions. You might be able to wash and dry smaller panels and sheers at home.
Q:A while ago I bought some beautiful linen-colored drapery panels for my apartment. Now they have some stains and are very dusty. When I was a kid I remember my grandma having her fancy draperies sent out for cleaning. Is there an easier way I can do this myself?
A: You’d be amazed at how much dust collects on draperies (and your walls, too) even though they are vertical! Cleaning your drapes and all window treatments will help reduce allergens and odors in your home, and lengthen the life of the fabric.
