Proper Care of Luminette Sheers

   A window dressed with Hunter Douglas Luminette Privacy Sheers is like a sophisticated woman dressed for an elegant evening on the town. Both wear finery - perhaps silk or chiffon for the woman and Angelica, Stria, Linéa, Sheer Linen or Summer Breeze for the window. The woman treats her evening apparel with special care and cleans it only as recommended by the manufacturer.

Durable Luminette sheers do not require such delicate handling as the woman's finery but deserve the same degree of care and the same adherence to cleaning specifications.
