The first thing that you will need to do is carefully remove your sheer curtains from the windows. When you get them down you may notice that they could be very covered in dust. This is extremely true if they have not been washed for a very long time. If that is the case, you will want to make sure that you shake them, outside, just a little bit in order to get all of that dust off of them before you move onto the next step.

Now, you will want to fill your sink half way with some warm water. Then, you will want to add your dish detergent to the water. Then, you need to take the time to fold your curtains a certain way. You will need to fold them lengthwise, and then you need to fold them in quarters. This is the most effective way to do it. You should not actually roll them into a ball and throw them into the water.

Once the curtains have been folded, and the water is ready, you will need to place the curtains in the water and let them soak for about 10 minutes. This is very important so you do not want to rush this aspect of the cleaning process. Wash the windows, or run the sweeper while you are waiting on them to soak.

Remove them from the soapy water and gently try to get as much water out of them as possible. Do not roll them into a ball, or ring them because you will only ruin them. Now, place them into clear water and move them around very gently with your hand. This is a great way for you to get any extra soap out of them.

Finally, place the sheer curtains on thick towels and then roll the towel like you would a jelly roll. This will allow any extra water to be removed from the curtains. Let them sit like this for a few moments. Then, remove the curtains from the towels and gently re-hang them so that they will air dry.

Red Curtains Add A Cheerful Touch to Any Kitchen

There are few things you can do to change the look and feel of your kitchen that will have as much impact as adding red curtains for a modern interior. It is quick and inexpensive to replace your existing kitchen net curtains or other types, and you will be surprised at how much difference this one small change can have. However, do not think that you need solid red kitchen curtains to make this alteration.

Gingham curtains are always a good choice to add country charm to a kitchen. There are also pink curtains of this kind if you choose to use another color. White backgrounds printed with a border of apples, cherries or roosters can also accomplish the same purpose. In addition, it will be easy for you to find canister sets, wall décor and linens that will complete the theme.

For a retro look, consider red plaid curtains or those with larger checks than traditional fabrics. Look for patterns reminiscent of old-time picnic cloths or dish towels. These fabrics were very popular during the fifties and coordinate well with the shiny vinyl many manufacturers are teaming with chrome for reproduction pieces. These curtains normally look best in a café style.

If you prefer a less colorful look, consider white curtains embroidered with small red roses with or without vines. You can also find them embroidered with other designs, such as cherries, strawberries or geometric symbols. The red adds just enough of an accent to brighten the room without becoming the focal point.

Dotted Swiss is an excellent fabric for kitchen window treatments. It is easy to care for and can add privacy without blocking out all of your light. You can also choose whether you want red dots on a white background or white dots on a red background.

A splash of bright color can work wonders when it comes to transforming a dark kitchen into a more cheerful room, regardless of the color of your appliances. Adding new curtains with a touch of red is very economical and, in most cases, is a change that you can make in mere minutes. With so many options from which to choose, your only difficulty will be in deciding on just one.
