How To Care For Sheer Curtains

Prevent Fading

The curtains hanging in front of windows that get a lot of natural sunlight will fade in time. Therefore, it’s best to hang light coloured sheer curtains in windows that receive ample sunlight, and dark coloured curtains in other shadier places. The light colours make it harder to notice the fading colours, thus allowing you to prolong the life of the curtains.


All of our sheer curtains will come with specific laundry instructions for you to follow directly. Overall, we recommend that sheer curtains are hand washed and dried on the line. If you do prefer to wash your curtains in a machine, be sure to place them in on their own so that they don't snag or get damaged on any other clothing. It's also always best to wash them in cold or warm water, as hot water may cause damage or discolouration if you have coloured sheer curtains.

Remove Wrinkles

Hanging the curtains on the line to dry is a great way to eliminate many wrinkles that can come from washing sheers. However, some curtains may still get wrinkled. Many sheer curtains can handle being ironed on a low heat setting, but please check the tag on your particular panel to ensure this is safe prior to moving forward.
