Stay healthy and allergy-free in your home and have curtains too. Check out these 3 tips for living with allergies and curtains:
Choose curtains that can easily machine washed. Having your curtains washed will remove dirt and dust mites have collected in the curtains. Wash at a temperature 55 to 60 oC is best to kill any nasties and get lovely clean curtains.
After washing your curtains, dry them outside in sunlight. The sun is a natural disinfectant and will kill any allergens that may be present in the fabrics. Wash your curtains every 3 months at minimum or more if there has been a lot of dust in the air. Wash in spring after you home has been closed up for the winter.
Avoid buying curtains that are made from wool, silk, or fabric blends that may increase the changes of holding dust mites. It is best to use curtains made from pure cotton, linen or a synthetic blended fabric.
Make sure your curtains can be vacuumed. Regularly vacuum your curtains in between washing them. Use vacuum with a good HEPA filter(High-efficiency particulate arrestance filter) as it will remove even the smallest allergen particles from within the fabrics.
Vacuuming your curtains need to be done regularly to minimise allergens getting inside the curtains. You can vacuum your curtains twice a month ensuring you will remove all the allergens that are present.
