Cleaning Pleated Curtains

Our Bigfoot has pleated curtains, which have a sort of vinyl finish on one side. Does anyone have these (or variations of)? Any Bigfoot owners with these (Kitty, your pictures that you posted, it looks like your curtains are the same as ours)? How can these be cleaned? Dry cleaning?

Big foot Curtains.

Dan :

We took our Bigfoot pleated curtains to three dry cleaners and due to the backing, none would clean them.

My wife machine washed them on a gentle cycle with cool water and they came out clean. She then put them outdoors on the clothes line to dry. When dry she formed the pleats by hand and carefully ironed them on the untreated side. We can not remember for certain but we think she used "Zero" washing soap.

This was all trial and error, but the final result was all we could wish for. Even a watermark that was several years old washed out.

Hope this helps.

Colin
