Curtains are often a harbor for dust, dirt and allergens. Washing your curtains will remove these irritant and help your home look clean and fresh. IKEA is a home furnishing company with roots in Sweden, but has brick and mortar stores across the United States. IKEA sells a variety of curtain styles to compliment your home décor. All of IKEA's curtains are machine-washable and need to be hung to dry. Depending on the fabric style the curtains can be washed on cold, warm or hot temperatures.

Step 2

Hang the curtains to dry. Do not tumble dry.

Step 3

Iron on a low to medium setting.

Place the curtains back onto the rod. Clean your curtains once a month to keep them looking new.
