  • 2 min reading time

Plastic shower curtains may be affordable and easy to replace when they get dirty , but the cost adds up over time. Instead of throwing them away when they start to look a little worn, try cleaning your shower curtains - this is actually quite simple and will save you time and money in the long run.

Cleaning your shower curtain can be a very quick and easy task, so it's a much more cost-effective choice than buying a new one every time a stain appears.

How to clean a plastic shower curtain

A curtain, which takes the brunt of the splash during your shower, should be cleaned more often: The ideal frequency to clean your curtain is once a month to be ahead of any mold growth, as it is the closest from all the humidity.

If your curtain is plastic, you can still use your washing machine , but change the settings to cold water and add a bath towel or two in the load to keep the curtains from wrinkling too much.

As an additional step in combating mold and mildew, you can add detergent or a stronger cleaner:

-We recommend adding half a cup of baking soda and a quarter cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle. Jave water is also very powerful against mold (do not mix with other products)

If you are specifically looking to kill mold , we highly recommend choosing bleach as your washing product. This method helps remove any built-up mold or mildew, which is very common on plastic shower curtains that are constantly exposed to moisture and heat.

After washing, remember to let your plastic curtain air dry.

For a more thorough and deeper clean, you can hand wash the curtain in the bathtub

Remove it from the rod and fill your bathtub or large sink with water. Mix a quarter cup of baking soda and a drop of dishwashing liquid and add the mixture to the curtain. Use a sponge or soft brush to clean the curtain, then rinse with warm water.

Tips for cleaning your shower curtain

Here are some additional tips for cleaning your shower curtain and sheet protector:

  • Don't leave your shower curtain wet. Mold and mildew are attracted to moisture and heat. Be sure to let them dry completely before folding them up or putting them back into place.

  • Try to clean your shower curtain regularly. The longer you wait to clean your shower curtain, the harder it will be to remove mold and mildew. It is therefore best to clean them regularly to maintain their cleanliness.

By following these tips, you should be able to clean your shower curtain effectively.
