Cleaning blinds may look like a Herculean task, but you can do it in a jiffy, if you have a basic idea about the right methods. If you have installed blinds at your home, make sure that they are cleaned regularly. Dust accumulated for months on end can be more difficult to remove. Such dirty blinds may also pose health risks. Regular cleaning involves dusting both sides of the blinds using a lambswool duster, paintbrush, or vacuum cleaner with the soft brush attachment. Once a week dusting will be sufficient to maintain your blinds clean. Wash the blinds once in every three to six weeks. This can be done on your own, or by hiring professionals. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions, especially in case of expensive blinds.
Scented curtain tassels are available in a variety of colors and scents, all designed to blend smoothly into your home and lifestyle. For starters, choose your tassel color: Burgundy, Chocolate Blue, Ivory, Rust, Olive, Mahagony - a sampling of some of the colors available.
Do-it-Yourself Take measurements of your window or door where the curtain should be placed with a measuring tape. Cut the fabric to the desired length and breadth. Leave two to four inches for the curtain pocket or few inches for extra finished hem as per your choice. Now take a fusible tape and spread it all over the fabric. Make sure the fabric is left free for about two to four inches from the top for easy hanging of the curtain. Take the remaining fabric from above the tape, fold it, and attach to the tape. Now place the curtain on an ironing board and iron it to smoothen the crease. Now you can hang the curtain on a rod. Some More Ideas You can make the curtain and clip it on the hanging rod with the help of clip rings. Attach buttons at the top and lock them with the hanging rod. Thread a fine wire or ribbon and connect them to the loops of the curtain. The buttons give a good support to the curtain. Buy grommet kits from fabric stores and slip them over wall hooks. Attach with the curtain lops and hang it. It looks very simple and sophisticated. Make long loops with beaded links. Cut equal lengths of a cord, tie it with grommets and hide the knot from behind. Buy matching rayon coils and poke a hole through the top of the curtain. Now tie this with the wall hooks. For gorgeous satin silk curtains, you need some extra fabric. Create a channel at the top of the fabric. Thread a narrow pole through it. The extra fabric creates case of pleats that look gorgeous. Punch an eyelet and thread a wire through it and hang the curtain. Eyelet kits are available in the market. Bondaweb curtains with bundles of pleats and embellishments look rather chic. If you know the art of embroidery, just design yourself. Fabric
The fabrics were not enough for a long panel. So I lined them together and sewed them then ironed them, and I got a long stripe.
