I’ve never been one of those people who likes iron things. If I absolutely have to, I will, but if I can toss it in the dryer with a wet towel first, I am all in. When I recently changed out my curtains in my dining room, they were super-creased and wrinkly. Since I wasn’t about to iron those bad boys, and they wouldn’t really fit in the dryer ( just kidding…), I used my HomeRight Steam Machine Elite to Remove Wrinkles with Steam from Drapery and Curtains.
(In case you are wondering about the difference between drapes and curtains. Drapes are normally lined, where curtains are not and are generally made out of a lighter, more sheer fabric.)
I like to change out my window treatments out on a regular basis. Since we are tight on storage, they all tend to be jammed in the linen closet together. These drapes are linen, so they seem to end up even more wrinkled than other curtains I have.
I have the HomeRight SteamMachine Elite that I use around my house for many cleaning tasks. I love to use it to steam my ceramic tile, and other heavy duty disinfecting, and indoor and outdoor cleaning tasks. It has a ton of great attachments. For the first time, I finally pulled the fabric steamer attachment and bonnet that goes with it out of the box.
You can see the full tutorial here on the HomeRight blog.
The one thing I really liked about it, was that it went fast. Once the machine was ready, the steam took even the worst wrinkles and creases out quickly. Steaming both panels only took me about 10 minutes. It was actually very satisfying to see the winkles disappear!
It’s funny how once you remove the wrinkles with steam, the drapery panels actually lengthen a bit too (This is a great trick to do before hemming!)! They look so much better, and I love how the steamer even freshened them up a bit after being in the closet for a while.
