  • Take down the curtains? Never! I vacuum them on the rod so they're not dusty, but run to take them to the dry cleaner *since they're not machine washable)? No. :o)

  • Shower curtain, every couple of months. Washable curtains, about once a year (kitchen ones maybe twice a year). Dry-clean-only drapes, I just vacuum them.

  • Curtains I wash every spring and fall shower curtain every once in a while since the shower doesn't get used in that bathroom it's more just to get the dust off

  • The fabric shower curtain - I've never washed it. If I ever see mildew on it, I would, but otherwise, I see no need to. We do replace the plastic inner curtain a couple times a year.
