Tips for washing curtains

Curtains need to be washed regularly and it's not just a matter of aesthetics. Dust and dirt accumulate between the fibers, so over time, curtains can become breeding grounds for bacteria, and if condensation and mold often form on the windows, fungal spores can grow too.

Washing curtains is a troublesome job: you need to take them off, soak them, dry them, and hang them up again. House Digest has revealed a common kitchen product that makes cleaning much easier.

An affordable kitchen ingredient can help keep your curtains clean and fresh in a much simpler, easier, and faster way. Baking soda eliminates dirt, odors, and bacteria.

When machine washing, add ½ cup of baking soda to your regular detergent. Alternatively, sprinkle baking soda on top of the curtains after you have washed them and laid them out. It is better to leave the baking soda on overnight for better disinfection.

For spot removal of stains, you can make a paste by mixing a tablespoon of water with two tablespoons of baking soda. Apply the paste to the stain and rub it gently to avoid damaging the delicate fabric.

Experts suggest another effective way to clean with baking soda and you don't even have to remove the curtains. Fill a heat-resistant spray bottle halfway with very hot water. Then add two teaspoons of baking soda and a small amount of rinse aid to the mixture. Finally, spray the curtains with the solution.
