Cleaning Curtains

I am amazed some times by the amount of dust that can gather in no time!

My Frugal Friday tip is:

To get the layer of dust that can mount on the top of your curtains off, simply throw them in the dryer for 15-20 minutes. No need to wash them, they probably aren't dirty, but just dusty. By not running them through the washer you are not adding to their fading or wearing.

Never even thought of that!! And I wont worry about ruining them or even having to iron, thanks!

That's a good idea! I guess you can just put the dryer on air dry and save even more.
