Privacy Pleated, unlike other pleated shades, features no holes in the front of the fabric. Cords are strung through an innovative tab on the back of the shade - however when the blind is raised this feature causes the bottom rail to curl under - see picture. If blind is raised all the way open then the bottom rail will not curl under. This minimizes fading of carpets and furniture and reduces UV by 95%. Each Privacy Pleated shade features crisp pleats that resist drooping abs sagging, this also stacks up tight for maximum view-through. Washable, easy to clean fabric..

Cleaning Instructions: These were developed for the fabric used in pleated shades.
· Remove the pleated shade from the window, open the shade and lay it out on a clean, flat surface, such as a table or countertop. If the shade is dusty, simply vacuum over it using an upholstery attachment. For cleaning fingerprints or soiled spots on pleated shades, Bali recommends using an aerosol spray foam upholstery or fabric cleaner. Spray the foam cleaner over the entire area to be cleaned. Immediately scrub the area with a clean damp sponge until the stains are removed. If necessary, the entire shade may be cleaned in this fashion. Be careful not to crush or wrinkle the fabric. Remove the excess water from the fabric by patting with a clean, dry towel. Hang the shade up when completely dry. Frequent cleaning may tend to remove the fullness and body of the pleated fabric. Due to the differences in ultrasonic cleaning operators, it is not recommended. Do not use strong detergents or spot removers. Dry cleaning is not recommended.
