    When they are really grubby or if I notice mould on them. Not often.

    In our old place I'd only put them up for summer to block out the heat, as our place stayed nice and warm in winter. So I would wash them once a year before putting them up. We moved in here a bit over a year ago, and I only put curtains up yesterday so I'll have to remember to wash them at some point! I'll bet I won't for years though, LOL

    ummmm...we've lived here for 2.5 years and I've never washed the curtains. We only have one set of curtains though. We have a couple of windows with blinds on them (that get dusted) and then lots and lots of windows with nothing on them.

    Every 12 months or so, depending on when it occurs to me that i haven't done it in a long time. It's not high on my list of priorities, so it doesn't happen often, but i do enjoy having freshly cleaned curtains, it freshens up the whole room.

    I say once a year. Where we live there is a sugar mill in town and after the crush (20 weeks a year) its rather dusty and sooty. So its a good time to wash everything. I wouldn't do it to often or you wont get a long life out of your curtains and honestly they are to expensive not to get alot of wear out of.

    Every 12 months. We use a coonara heater for most of the colder months, and sometimes the smoky smell can stick around so i like to wash them.

    NEVER.

    They are the first things I rip down when I move into a new house - cannot stand them!
