Can you put curtains in the washing machine?


Some curtains can be machine washed, though you need to be careful at all times as shrinkage can be an issue depending on the fabric.

Generally speaking, machine washing is most suitable for lighter curtains, as thicker ones will retain moisture and may experience issues after the wash.

Furthermore, you need to be careful with the type of fabric used for the curtains, as those made from light cotton or similarly delicate fabrics are liable to shrink if they are put in the wash.

If you do elect to machine wash then your regular fabric softeners and powders should be fine, but be sure to set the washing machine to the most delicate spin cycle available to maintain the integrity of the curtains. A cool wash with a slow spin cycle should be fine in many cases.

If you are unsure if the fabric used for your curtains can be machine washed when it is best not to risk it.
