The hangings, tablecloth or doily you have bought is a handicraft item made of raw cotton and processed by preshrinking. The products have been tested in real life. They should not be washed too often as they are natural, do not pick up static and do not get too much dust. Also the net dimensions 8 mm x 8 mm or 5 mm x 5 mm prevent excessive dust and dirt accumulation.
Basing on their several-years long experience, our customers confirm that new curtains may remain in windows without washing for from one and a half to two years.
1. Machine washing – dirty folded product should be put into a bag or pillowcase and tied thoroughly to prevent spontaneous slipping out while washing. If the curtain has fringes, they should be bundled together before putting into the bag. The product protected in such a way should be put into the washing machine. The recommended washing cycle is handwash in 40ºC. The washing agent should not contain any bleach. The fabric softener shall be replaced with any bleach-free starch. Washed and spin-dried but wet product shall be hung or placed in the right position. If the edges are not even they should be pulled with fingers. Your curtain, tablecloth or doily will look perfect for many years.
2. Those with more time and traditional approach may wash and rinse the products manually. Spin-dried wet products shall be hung or placed in their right position and also pulled with fingers if any edges are not even.
