How to clean your shower liners instead of throwing them away

Why throw your shower liners so often when you can actually clean them? And believe it or not, cleaning them is one of the easiest things possible.

So save up your money and let’s get to cleaning.

Your washing machine will be your best friend – and one of the best parts is that you already probably have these ‘‘detergents’’ that we will use laying in your home.

You can use baking soda

Put the shower liner in your washing machine with two towels. Why? The towels will prevent the plastic curtains from crinkling and sticking. Before you turn the appliance on put a mixture of the normal detergents you use and 1/2 cup of baking soda.

DO NOT put the curtains in the dryer – let them air-dry since you might damage them. And after all, you will clean them in order to avoid buying new ones.

You can use bleach

If you need to remove mold and mildew you can even use bleach. Again, put the curtains in the washing machine with two towels and add 1/2 cup of chlorine bleach to the laundry detergent you normally use.

Then put the curtains on the lowest temperature in the dryer for ten minutes and after that hang it somewhere to dry.

You can use vinegar

Another way you can clean mildew stains is with using vinegar. Grab the two towels I previously mentioned and put them in the washing machine with the curtains. Add laundry detergent and 1/2 cup of baking soda. Then add a cup of vinegar to the first rinse. Take the curtains out of the washing machine before it goes into the spin cycle. Let them air dry.
