    Go to the store and look for Amazing....When you don't find it just buy some AWESOME because that's the cleaner that I recommended to Handarko....

    On my Century, I laid them on a prewashed driveway and hit both sides with the power washer, used a scrub brush on the vinyl side and they came out pretty darn clean. Hung 'em to dry for a couple days and almost as good as new.

    I think it's just awesome that BW could give you that recommendation and amazing that you found a photo of the wrong product.

    *sighs* This is what happens when a team truck gets to shut down and both drivers sleep at the same time: one of them is incredibly bored in the sleeper the next day.

    I have a Shark Steamer..
    Cleans, Dusts, Gets Rid Of Grease.

    Lay the curtains on the ground on something clean & run the steamer over both sides
    Cleans the walls of dust & it was a tax deduction... lol

    never tried washing curtains--but i do know those #### kw curtains seem to shrink on their own after awhile and are a bear to get the zipper done up--normally i wipe them down with armourall cleaner or similiar---very often
    for a nice get rid of the smell idea--when you are off for a couple days--get some vanilla--soak a rag with it and just toss it on the floor for a couple of days---all the smelly odours are gone after that

    I wonder how that would work on my carpet?

    I did that once. But it was a pair of jeans that were soaked in diesel instead.

    not very good smelling afterwards.
