How do I look after my sheer curtains?
Sheer curtains are delicate, so many will be labelled as hand wash only, and generally, a light soak followed by a rinse will be sufficient. Let them drip dry on the line or hang them back up to dry out if possible, as they cannot usually be ironed. Never put in the tumble dryer as most sheer curtains will not cope well with the movement and heat of the dryer.
