Planning a Dinner Party? Now Is the Perfect Time to Get Your Curtains Washed

When was the last time you had your curtains washed? If you're like most people, you probably don't remember. Perhaps it's never occurred to you that curtains even need washing—after all, they're not like bedding that you're in direct contact with every night or carpets that collect crumbs, dust and spillages.

If you're one of these people, you might want to reconsider. Curtains can get surprisingly dirty, and they should be washed more often than you think. If you're planning a dinner party for friends or family, there's never a better time to get all your curtains properly washed, and here's why.

Create an allergen-free environment

Like carpets and other fabrics in your home, curtains collect a lot of dust. With dust mites being one of the most common allergies around, it's worth making sure your home is as dust-free as possible.

Even if nobody in your household has allergic symptoms, there's a fairly good chance that at least one of your dinner party guests will. And in addition to dust mites, curtains also collect pet hair, cleaning product particles, mould spores and other materials that can set off allergies.

Get rid of lingering odours

Your home has a unique smell, consisting of the food you cook, the products you use, and various other factors relating to the people who live there. You probably don't notice it, but when you go to someone else's house, you're sure to notice theirs.

These distinctive home smells are rarely bad, per se, but they can make a home smell less than fresh. When you're hosting a dinner party, you want your guests to concentrate on the delicious food you're serving up, not the smells of yesterday's lunch mingling with stale perfume.

Avoid the attention of nosy guests

There's always that one person who treats a visit to someone else's home as an opportunity to inspect the level of cleanliness.

Even if you thoroughly clean every other part of your house, your curtains can look a bit grubby. Getting them cleaned means there's one less thing for the snob in your social circle to turn their nose up at.

Increase your confidence

If you're not used to hosting dinner parties, you might feel a bit nervous about having a group of people over to your house all at once. One of the best ways to boost your confidence is to create a clean, fresh atmosphere, and your curtains are the finishing touch that will make your home perfect.
