How to Clean Your Tapestry (part 2 of 2)

Tapestries may fade due to direct sunlight. To prevent that from happening, put it somewhere else or apply window film or tint to reduce the amount of ultraviolet light coming from the window.

For those who want to give their tapestry an antique look, you can try having it washed or tea stained. Again, make sure this is done by a professional to prevent it from being damaged.

If you have children in the house, make sure the tapestry is out of their reach. If they pull on it, they could damage the fabric. The same goes if you plan to use the tapestry as a rug because your pet could chew it to pieces.

Tapestries are not only hung on walls because they can also be used as a rug or a throw. It is your option how you want to display it but just remember how much you paid it.

You can easily find tapestries for sale in your neighborhood store or online. Since there are so many designs to choose from, you are sure to find something that will match your home. If you want to display one design for one season and another in the following months, knock yourself out because if it is not available in one store, you are use to find it in another.

It is one thing to buy a tapestry and another to take care of it. By following the instructions mentioned, the tapestry you have is sure to last for many years before its time to replace it with a new one.
