Is It Time To Teach Your Curtains A Lesson?

Is It Time To Teach Your Curtains A Lesson?

New curtains hanging badly? Existing curtains forgotten where their folds should be?


  1. Pull curtain across and allow natural folds to form.
  2. Starting at the outside edge, use the natural folds and gradually open the curtain pleating the fabric evenly between your hands.  Ensure the pleats continue all the way down to the bottom.
  3. Tie the curtain with some fabric strips/string in several places from the top to bottom (approx. 50-75cms apart).  The ties need to be secure but not too tight as they may crease the fabric.
  4. Clap hands together around the curtains at the top, middle and bottom, make any final adjustments then DO NOT TOUCH THEM for a minimum of 2-3 days.  If you can bear it, leave for 5 days.

Congratulations…your curtains should now be trained to hang in beautiful folds!
