Spring is here! If you are getting your Spring cleaning underway, be sure to add refreshing rugs and curtains to that to-do list. Rugs and curtains are an essential part of any home decor, but they can also absorb unpleasant smells and become stained over time. If your rugs and curtains are looking and smelling less than fresh, don't worry! There are plenty of ways to refresh them and bring them back to life. Here are some tips on how to refresh your rugs and curtains.
Vacuuming is the first step in refreshing your rugs and curtains. Regular vacuuming can help remove dirt, dust, and pet hair from your rugs and curtains, keeping them clean and fresh. Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to trap allergens and dust particles.
Steam cleaning is an effective way to refresh and sanitize your rugs and curtains. It can remove pet stains, smoke smell, and general mustiness from your fabrics. If you don't have a steam cleaner, you can rent one from a home improvement store or hire a professional.
Baking soda is a natural deodorizer and can help remove unpleasant smells from your rugs and curtains. Sprinkle baking soda over your rugs and curtains and leave it for several hours before vacuuming it up. This will help absorb any unwanted odors.
Pets are bound to have accidents. And they usually aim for your textiles instead of the hardfloor. When this occurs, use an enzymatic cleaner to refresh soiled fabrics. Enzymatic cleaners are designed to break down organic stains and odors, such as pet accidents. They are safe for use on rugs and curtains and can be found at most pet stores or online. Follow the instructions on the label for best results.
And our last suggestion is just good ol’ sunlight. Sunlight is a natural way to refresh and deodorize your rugs and curtains. Hang your curtains outside in direct sunlight for a few hours to remove mustiness and refresh the fabric. You can also place your rugs outside in the sun to air out.
