Silk can add a touch of luxury to your decor. Shimmery and diaphanous, it is a wonderful choice of fabric for window treatments. However, when it gets dirty, it can leave you wondering how to clean it without causing damage. Dry-cleaning would be the recommended solution, but that can be expensive. To clean your silk window treatments at home, use the method below. Read on for a spot-cleaning method if you only wish to clean a small area of silk.
If only a small area needs to be cleaned and you don't want to undergo the above process, you can try spot-cleaning. Always test any substance you put on your silk on an inconspicuous area to make sure it won't cause damage. Try lemon juice, white vinegar, or rubbing alcohol to remove the stain.
