Hunter Douglas manufactures beautiful, low-maintenance window shades that are easy to clean. Luminette sheers allow light to filter through and still provide lots of privacy. Because Luminette sheers are made from a delicate fabric, Hunter Douglas recommends only some cleaning techniques for them, but don't worry. Keeping the sheers clean is simple if you follow a few guidelines.
Things You'll Need
- Hand-held vacuum
- Lukewarm water
- Mild laundry detergent
- Hand-held steamer
Dust your sheers. Most everyday dust and dirt can be brushed off with a light dusting; rarely do the sheers require more in-depth cleaning.
Vacuum your Hunter Douglas sheers with a hand-held vacuum using a vertical stroke if the dirt does not come out by dusting. Start at the top and work your way to the bottom using straight strokes. Do not use a brush attachment on the Luminette series of sheers because it might damage the fabric.
Wet a washcloth with lukewarm water and blot any noticeably stained areas on the sheers. Add a mild clothes detergent to the wet washcloth if the stain is stubborn and dab at it. Do not rub the stain. You do not want to risk damaging the fabric in the sheer.
Steam your shades with a hand-held steaming attachment to remove wrinkles. Run the steamer from the top of the blind to the bottom according to the steamer manufacturer's instructions. Hunter Douglas does not recommend heavy duty steamers for this since they might cause fabric damage.
