    We have just put up thermal lined drapes throughout our house, I didn't even consider HOW I was going to wash them, any suggestions?

    For some reason I was expecting "wash your curtains" to be a euphemism for something.
    And was a bit disappointed when I opened the thread.

    So the answer is obviously never, I've never heard of such a thing!

    REALLY OFF TOPIC but...
    DH asked if it was about "meat curtains" which I had no idea what that was until he told me. Oh dear
