Stop Those Drapes From Burning Down

Follow these 5 simple steps to make sure your curtain is fire retardant.

  1. Cut or rip off a small piece of the fabric.
  2. Take it outside where nothing else can catch fire.
  3. Hold a lighter to the fabric.
  4. Apply the flame for 5 seconds.
  5. Take the flame away.

If the fabric stops burning on its own, it is fire retardant.

Caution: Never do this on hanging curtains or fabrics!
