Full Answer

To construct a curtain stretcher, one needs to have four wooden frames of between 2 and 4 yards long and metallic pins. The pins need to be composed of material that does not rust such as plated nickel and brass in order for them to be long-lasting. This is because they will be holding the wet curtains tightly as they dry. Curtain stretchers can be used to dry net and lace curtains since they stretch if ironed.
