Do you do anything to take care of your drapes/curtains? They are sooooo expensive to buy, so anything to maintain them/extend their life is probably useful. Do you hoover them regularly? Do you have them dry-cleaned? Think this would be very costly, and maybe not good for them - not to mention a huge pain in the bum! What do you do for roman blinds? Shades?

I regularly dust my wooden slat blinds, but have ignored the other window coverings up to now. Suggestions much appreciated from those who know about these things!

hoover them but use the soft brush and turn the suction down.Also use strings to open close etc to keep them clean-I need to get out more!
