Take the curtains down, if desired. Lay the curtains out onto a flat surface.
Vacuum off any dust or debris on the curtains with a hose attachment.
Mix 1 tsp. of dishwashing soap and 3 cups cool water. Stir.
Soak a sponge with the dishwashing mixture and wring out the majority of the liquid.
Dab at the stained areas of the curtains with the sponge. Avoid allowing too much water to come in contact with the velvet as this could cause damage.
Allow the curtains to dry thoroughly, which could take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours depending upon the thickness of the velvet.
Hang the curtains back in their original spot.
Things You Will Need
- 1 tsp. liquid dish soap
- 3 cups water
- Rub the sponge over the curtain in the direction of the velvet's nap. Rubbing against against the nap can cause the velvet to appear tattered.
