Vacuum using the upholstery tool. Fabrics may be dry-cleaned, apart from blackout blinds, following the recommendations on the label.

Remove the blind from the headrail, paying attention to how the cords are threaded, and take out the rods and bottom bar. The fabric can now be dry cleaned with care.

Pleated blinds
Clean using a clean, dry duster. Be careful not to damage the pleats by pressing too hard. Use a hairdryer to blow debris off the back of roof blinds and then vacuum.

Curtains
All curtains can be dry-cleaned.  Due to the nature of some fabrics, a small amount of shrinkage, up to approximately 5% can be expected. To keep dry cleaning to a minimum, we would recommend they are cleaned regularly with the upholstery attachment of a vacuum cleaner. Hems and side seams should never be pressed as this will distort the curtains.
