Your Curtains Could Be the Dirtiest Thing in Your Home

“Out of sight, out of mind,” is the saying, right?

That’s probably why your curtains have been neglected; all the dirty things that are trapped in the fabric are not always easily visible. They’re definitely there, though, as curtains are pretty much a haven for dust, pollen, shedded hair and pet fur, dander from pets, and other common allergens.

Now, imagine that all the bacteria and grime that you’ve left on the beautiful fabric, just hanging by your windows and in close proximity to you for extended periods of time.

Not quite sanitary.

A few factors should be considered, such as the location of the room or building, and even the lifestyle and health conditions of its occupants.

Generally, cleaning your curtains once every six months is a good practice. Yet, if there’s someone in the family who is especially allergic or sensitive to dust, it is advisable that you have them cleaned more regularly.



If you are prone to leaving the windows open and live near a busy road with plenty of vehicle traffic, or if you or a family member smokes, all the curtains in your home will trap dust and smoke particles. They’ll absorb the smell as well, so in such conditions, it’s best to wash them more frequently.

Though hard-wearing fabric in dark colours can be dry-cleaned once every year, a delicate fabric in lighter colours will need to become a part of your household routine.
