Dry the curtain.

When you’re done with cleaning, dry the Curtain outside. Exposed it in the fresh air and sunlight. Do not keep for more than an hour in sunlight, excess sunlight may fade the curtain.

After drying use a deodorizer to give the curtain a fresh smell. Now, whenever you pull the curtain to greet the sunlight, you can do it without any interruptions.
