Creases in new curtains
What is the first thing you do when you buy a new set of curtains for your home?
Most people hang the curtains straight away to see if they suit the room and are the right length. But most curtains straight out of the packaging are laden with creases where they have been folded.
Later you may decide you want to remove the creases, but the prospect of taking them down, removing the plastic hooks and trying to iron them is just too daunting. Especially if, like the last time you ironed some curtains you lost your place and ended up with worse creases than when you started.
Enter the Propress steamer
Steaming curtains is so much easier than ironing, and more effective.
Firstly, you don’t need to remove the curtains from the rail, you can steam ‘in-situ’.
On the ironing board, as you probably already know from previous experience, you will try and lay the curtain over the board but most will sit on the floor gathering dirt and yet more creases.
A better way? A definite yes, steaming curtains is fast and effective. You can easil steam on the rail, and with a steamer like a Propress, creases drop out in an instant.
Other benefits of steaming curtains?
1. Removing dust mites
Steaming is a highly effective way to remove nearly 100% of dust mites lurking in the fabric. Dust mites can cause allergic reactions and trigger asthma attacks. A steamer can kill dust mites instantly and help in preventing allergies.
2. Eco friendly
Steamers work without the use of harmful chemicals, potentially harmful to you and the environment.
3. Removes odours
In killing bacteria, the steaming process also freshens the fabric and removes undesirable smells and odours.
4. Gentle on fabrics
Ironing compresses fabrics at high temperature and over time can lead to shining and premature wear. Steaming simply relaxes the fibres to remove the creases and in doing so preserves the look and life of the fabric.
