Repairing Rubber Backed Curtains


Recently I had some acrylic (rubber) backed curtains dry-cleaned and the backing broke down so that light shines through in various patches. Is there anyway they can be rescued? A separate backing was attached at a cost, but the light still shines through.

Answers:

Just a thought... What if you put a dollop of rubber cement (packaged in jar with a brush) on the back of the curtain where the light shines through, it's similar to the rubber backing. It might work. But you've already paid to have a second (fabric?) backing added so it gets a little tricky now, you don't want to ruin that also.
