Dry Cleaning 02 Safari Curtains?

I took my 02 Safari curtains to the dry cleaners today. The clerk who waited on me was not sure that the small plastic track parts on the curtains could make it through the dry cleaning process. She was concerned that the chemical would melt the plastic parts. Any of you have experience drying cleaning Safari curtains and did the plastic parts survive?

I've heard a lot of people complaining that they shrink when dry cleaned. I use "Clean Earth" dry cleaners and they do a great job without all the nasty chemicals. I did a quick search and there are not any in your area, Nashville is the closest Clean Earth dry cleaner to you.

There are also posts of people that cleaned them at home with good results. Just do a search for cleaning curtains.

Good luck,

I washed ours with Woolite in my front loader on delicate cycle (cold water). Then "hand pressed" them flat to dry. Touch up with warm iron. No problems and they look great. I don't think I would put them in a top loading washing machine but would hand wash instead.

Good luck,

Thank you for the information. I do not have a front loading washer. I know that others have had good luck washing the curtains. The owners manual says to only dry clean these particular curtains. I am concerned about damaging that much fabric. There are 14 curtain panels in our Safari. I'll check into green earth cleaning. I'll let you know how this turns out.
