Can I iron my curtains?
There shouldn't be any need to iron your curtains when they arrive. Any creasing should fall out naturally, but give us a call if you have any concerns.
No, this is not advisable. The fabric will almost certainly shrink, there’s a high possibility colours might run and the linings could be damaged. Curtains can be dry cleaned at your own risk, but please note they can shrink by up to 3% during the process. If you have to take your blackout/thermal lined curtains to the dry cleaners please let them know that they'll need to be put through a very sensitive treatment. Loom & Last accepts no responsibility for any damage incurred by your dry cleaner. The best way to keep your curtains clean is to vacuum them in situ with a clean nozzle.Will my curtains fade?
Over time yes, particularly if they are exposed to direct sunlight. If your curtains are unlined they will fade faster than lined or, better still, interlined curtains. The most effective way to protect your fabric is to use a blackout lining, as this will prevent any direct sunlight reaching the face fabric. Silk fabric fades considerably faster than cotton and linen.
