How to Get the Wrinkles out of your Curtains without an Iron?

Whenever you open a new pack of curtains they are always folded and creased in a gazillion little squares and rectangles. Even when you put them in the washer to clean them ( if your curtains are not dry clean only) they still don’t have a really good hang to them.

I started steaming my drapes a few years ago after my hubby made me get this steamer for him for Christmas one year. He wanted his shirts to be steamed instead of ironed.

I wish I could say I iron all my hubby’s work shirts, but I don’t. I think I’m more of a modern housewife. I send it to the cleaners, throw it in the dryer orrrrrrr he does the steaming himself. haha

Anyway, once I discovered that it could knock out wrinkles in minutes, I was hooked! Plus I’m 99% sure every professional interior designer does this or has those new curtains dry cleaned.

I highly recommend this one from Jiffy that I purchased from Amazon years ago. Happy to say it still has great reviews plus, it’s mobile, has a long hose and of course you can use it just about anywhere in your home AND you can hang your shirts or pants on the little hanger. I use it on comforters and bed skirts too! Makes them look so much better!

You can see here in our guest room, I hung these linen drapes from Ikea. They’ve been in storage for a while and had gotten pretty wrinkled. I just turned on the steamer and it only took a few seconds for the wrinkles to come out!

Before:

The key to getting them nice and straight is to slightly pull down on them while you are moving up and down. Work in small sections for even better results!

I think the reason this works so well because the small amount of water that the drapes gets helps them to dry nicely while they hang. It just works! I also like to use the natural creases as my guide as I work through each panel.

  1. Where did you get your beautiful curtains? Our home has 10ft ceilings and the 96″ length actually is too short. ?
