What is the best way to get rid of odor from musty curtains? Here are some tips that could do the job for you.
Believe it or not, vodka is one of the best deodorizing agents for removing unwanted odors from your curtains. And, it is a very cost effective solution as well. You can get any of cheap vodkas from the local shop and that would do the job perfectly for you. All you would need to do is pour some diluted vodka in a spray bottle and apply it on the drapes. Then, give it a few minutes before the drapes dry up and you are good to go. Vodka helps eliminate bad odors from curtains, carpets, upholstery and the likes. So this proves to be a cheap yet effective trick!
Baking soda’s accomplishments and capability in the field of odor removal is undeniable. It has the ability to trap all kinds of bad smells and thus works as a good vaporizer of sorts. This is the same reason why people? Firstly, get a large brown bag and place your drapes inside it. To that, add a bit of baking powder and close the top of the bag. Keep it for a few hours and keep shaking the bag every once in a while. Once that is done, unlock the bag and shake the excess baking soda off the drapes. You would be able to notice the difference in smell. Your curtain is good to go now!
Fresh air or Sun Dry
Just like how we need fresh air from time to time to rejuvenate, your curtains could also make use of clean air. The idea is simple and very basic. Get your drapes inside the washing machine and after a thorough wash with a mild detergent, hang them outside in the open. This ensures that the curtains are exposed to fresh air and this could do wonders for your drapes. However, direct sunlight should be avoided lest it damages the material.
Vinegar can also prove to be a great weapon against the odor from your blinds. The idea is to add some vinegar and water in a spray bottle and mix them well. Once that is done, you could spray it on a small portion and test the material’s reaction to it. After a few hours, if the curtains are fine, you could spray it on the entire curtain. Thereafter, let the drapes air-dry for a few hours. This acts as a deodorizing agent and can magically remove odors from your curtains with one wash!
