Cleaning Vinyl Shower Curtain Liners

Is your shower curtain looking a little grungy? There’s nothing worse than scrubbing your bathtub only to have your hard work marred by a mildew-y or soap scummy shower curtain. You don’t have to chuck it out to get a fresh, clean shower curtain. You can wash it…IN THE WASHING MACHINE! No scrubbing required.

Despite the evidence in my bathroom, my mother-in-law does not believe me that the shower curtain can be washed in the machine. She continues to scrub hers by hand when she cleans her tubs, but I’m much lazier than my mother-in-law.

All you need to do is stuff the curtain (sans rings) in the washing machine with a bath towel or two, add detergent as usual and bleach, if desired. (I always add the bleach.) Run the machine on the normal cycle. Voila! Now you have a clean shower curtain, ready to be re-hung. Do not dry!

Clean shower curtain liners work for me.

I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
