How To Clean A Shower Curtain: 3 Easy Methods

Cleaning a shower curtain can be a daunting task. However, with this guide, you will learn how to clean it by hand in three easy steps.

Wipe Down the Curtain

When it comes to keeping a shower curtain clean, many people might just think about wiping it down when they’re done. However, there are a few other things that you can do in order to keep the curtain looking its best.

For example, if you notice that the water is starting to bead up on the surface of the curtain, then you might want to try using a shower filter.

Additionally, if you notice that the curtain is starting to fray or look old, then you might want to consider replacing it altogether.

Remove Stains or Spots

It’s always a worry when you step out of the shower and see spots or stains on your shower curtain. If the spots or stains are really bad, you may want to consider taking it to a professional cleaner.

However, if they’re only a little bit dirty, you can try cleaning them yourself. Here are some tips:

  1. Wet your curtain completely before scrubbing. This will help break up any dirt or grease that is stuck to the fabric.
  2. Use a mild soap like laundry detergent or body wash and scrub the stain with circular motions for about 30 seconds. Be sure to work around all of the edges of the stain.
  3. Rinse off the soap using running water and let the curtain dry completely before using it again.

Wash the Curtain

If you want to keep it looking clean and new, you’ll need to wash it often. Generally, you can wash it once a week, but if it starts to look dirty or gross, you can probably go ahead and wash it more often.

Just be sure to use a mild detergent and avoid using too much water – overuse can cause the fabric to become damaged.

Tension the Curtain

There is a lot of tension in the shower curtain. If it’s not pulled tight, it can easily fall off the rod and get dirty. And if it’s constantly falling off, it’s going to be a hassle to keep clean.

Hang Up Your New Shower Curtain!

It’s hard to keep a fresh one all the time. But there are ways to make it easier, like hanging it up when you’re done showering. Here are four tips for keeping them looking clean and fresh:

  1. Hang your new shower curtain with a hanger that matches the fixture. This will help keep it in place and look neat.
  2. Don’t let water get on the curtain while you’re in the shower. This means avoiding getting soap suds on it, and avoiding splashing if you have rain or a steamy shower.
  3. Keep the curtains clean by washing them once a week with mild soap and warm water, using a cloth towel to dry them off afterward.
  4. If your new curtain gets dirty, remove the piece of fabric from the rod and replace it with an unused one from your closet or drawer, so that you can continue to use your current curtain until it’s dirty again.

Enjoy Your Freshly Clean Shower Curtain!

Whether you just got out of the shower or are about to step in, take a moment to appreciate your freshly clean! And if you’re like me, you probably don’t take the time to really clean it often. But not only is a clean curtain important for hygiene reasons, but it also can make your bathroom look nicer.

So next time you’re having a tough time deciding whether or not to get out of the shower, take a moment to appreciate how clean your curtain is before making a decision.

And who knows? Maybe you’ll start taking more care of it and be able to enjoy that fresh shower curtain for years to come!
