Our buyers do not know the exact effects on the drape, in terms of shrinkage, but after about 40 or more washes, the colours do fade, especially on the darker, richer colours. To wash this drape, use the gentle cycle, in cold water, no bleach. Hang to dry. Iron on the lowest setting, only if necessary. Please note that constant washing of this drape may cause the foam backing to warp. Our buyers suggest light vacuuming of the drape to get rid of pet hair and dust that may cling to the drape, especially the foam back.
If you are looking for an alternative drape that may be able to stand up to constant care, our buyers have suggested any of our blackout programs. They too, have energy saving qualities, especially performing well in the light blocking department. Blackout drapes have an extra layer of black fabric sewn into the panel itself (it is sandwiched between 2 layers of fabric), so the drape may be able to stand up to more washings than a foam back drape. Also, blackout drapes can go in the dryer - always tumble dry low ! - if necessary.
The Whole HomeÂ®/MD 'Danielle' Blackout Grommet Panel, Item # 24-28185, is a good blackout alternative. It is similar to the Marcela Foam Back style, and it comes in similar colours, with a similar price point.
