Unfortunately not all curtains can be cleaned with a washing machine. If you will be washing the curtains by hand, you could use the bath to have ample space. Make use of a gentle detergent which doesn’t contain bleaching agents and mix in cool water. Be certain the detergent has fully dissolved before putting the curtains in the water. The best hand washing method is to gently squeeze the curtains, and not apply excess pressure. Consult the care label for specific instructions about cleaning your drapes. After washing, the curtains will have some creases. A bit of ironing will get rid of the unwanted wrinkles. To make ironing easier, don’t fully dry the curtains. Leave them slightly damp so the creases don’t set. Once the curtains are dried and ironed, they are ready for hanging.
Lace or sheer curtains will get damaged if thrown directly into a washing machine. You have two good options for cleaning more delicate materials. You can simply hand wash them to avoid fraying the fabric. Alternatively, still use a washing machine but first seal the curtain in a mesh bag to protect it from damage.
The buttonhooks require some extra fabric to make the straps. You will need a number of straps cut into equal sizes depending on the length of the curtain. The buttons should then be sewed on one end of each strap. Finally make buttonholes at the top edge of the curtain with regard to the size of the straps. One of the advantages of this method is that by adjusting the position of the buttonholes you can adjust the height of the curtain from the ground.
