Curtains are a staple in most houses for they provide shelter from heat and light. They also give us privacy and acts as a filter from external dirt and dust from the air. However, they are one of the most difficult household furnishing to clean. They are heavy and bulky to dismantle and re-hanging is a real chore. Hence cleaning can be quite an arduous task especially when there’s a space restriction and lack of machine capacity to handle the volume and size of the curtains in the house. Yet it is a step that should not be skipped for they may be quite costly to replace if they become too dirty or damaged. Hence, currently they are high demand on laundry services in Singapore.
Lace – romantic fabric that diffuses light beautifully. Commonly dry-cleanable only but sturdier ones might be able to withstand machine wash.
Synthetic – known for their durability and functionality. Most are not good with temperature and extreme tumble action so be sure to adhere to manufacturer’s instructions to get the most wear out of the fabrics.
Polyester – crowd favorite for its durability, affordability and easy care. However it is flammable so avoid it in the kitchen.
Silk – luxurious fabric that is very aesthetically pleasing but not most practical. It is dry-clean only and susceptible to sun damage if your window is exposed to a lot of natural light.
Linen – well ventilated fabric and does not block the sun. Like silk, they are dry-clean only.
Cotton – versatile fabric used to create a variety of styles. They are very light so they have to be properly lined to achieve the desired weighted look.
Pinch pleated – gives decorative finish at the top and works with most fabric types. Generally more bulky as the amount of fabric needed to make the curtains can be quite substantial.
Sheer – allows a little privacy while still filtering in light. They are delicate and lightweight so sheer curtains have to be handled with extra care as they can be easily ruin if not careful.
