I do not like to wash curtains. There, I have admitted it. I don't dislike any other cleaning as much as I dislike washing curtains. Oh, it is not the washing and drying....it is the taking down and putting up. One reason is that one set is hanging here:
But, I recently received Purex UltraPacks Plus Oxi to try out, so decided that I would bite the bullet and wash our bedroom curtains. We have 2 windows with floor length ivory curtains and valances. And they were dirty..... really dirty. Oh, not with dirt, but they have fringe that catches dust and they were really dusty. And, Hubby smokes, so I am sure that the nicotine contributed to the darkness of the color. I will tell you, that I was totally disgusted with them.
Here is what one valance looked like before washing. I should have
taken a picture of them hanging as they looked darker, but I didn't.
I threw them in the washing machine with a Purex UltraPack Plus Oxyi After washing and drying, that same valance looked like the below:
I was SO impressed with what a great job Purex UltraPacks Plus Oxi did! Purex Ultrapacks Plus Oxi combine the the convenience of Purex UltraPacks with the stain fighting power of Oxiclean. Purex makes it so easy to fight stains, while maintaning a simple laundry routine. What can be simpler than tossing a Purex Ultrapack in the washer?
