Before I get going let me say that I like IKEA. I know that some readers may feel that this pigeon-holes me in a negative way but I don’t care.
I like IKEA. There I’ve said it again.
I like their free coffee or rather I like their coffee because it’s free.
I like their cheap breakfasts.
But sometimes IKEA products suffer from style over substance and I have found one such product or rather Mrs Carr has.
The product we’ve found is this one ….
This would serve Mrs Carr’s purpose but we all now that curtains, especially white curtains, get dirty.
No! IKEA don’t know.
Look below at the care instructions.
Now IKEA, how are we meant to clean it when it gets grubby as it most assuredly will?
No advice is given. They tell us all we must NOT do but not what we need to do. This is madness.
But then on closer inspection the reason for all the Do Not’s becomes apparent. Look at the materials.
76% bloody paper! Style or substance?
IKEA you are having us on!
