Ideas On Cleaning A Shower Curtain

There are some things that you can do to make your shower curtain last you longer. There are certain little helpful and handy hints that are designed to keep your bathroom looking clean.

Because the shower curtain is always exposed to water moulds usually form on it. One thing that you can do is to remove the curtain maybe once every two or three days and hang it out in the sun. This will give it a chance to completely dry and kill any germs and bacteria that are likely to be on it.

Another option is to wash your curtain whenever you do your laundry or more regularly if need be. The thing is in addition to your normal laundry detergent you can add a cup of vinegar and a cup of any bleaching agent. Throw in some white towels and load the machine to its usually capacity, if it still does not fill to capacity.

Do not use hot water to wash the curtain as it might melt or possibly shrink in size. When you are drying do not throw it in the drier instead hang it out in the sun to dry.

Another idea that you can try is soaking the curtain in salt water or a mixture of salt water and vinegar after washing it and then put it back on the rod to dry from there. The salt water and the vinegar will prevent the formation of mildew and moulds.

You can use some of the sprays that are now available for use on shower curtains. The sprays are also designed to prevent the formation of moulds and mildew. Remember to always wash down any soap foams that fall on the shower curtain; they are the ones that usually become moldy.

How To Prevent Mold Growth On Shower Curtains

Are you looking for a way to deal with mold growth on your adorable brown shower curtain? Well here is a review that will help provide some very useful tips and recommendations on how to save your treasured hookless shower curtain with snap liner or whatever type you own and can not let go of|any kind that you own and have fallen inlove with.

The best and cost effective way to do this is to simply keep them clean and dry. You can use a washing machine to wash them – say once a month. For an RH of above 60% you will need to use a humidistat to help control the humidity.

When putting it in the washer just add some few towels in there so they can help clean it up.

Make sure the bathroom is generally well ventilated

Do leave the curtain closed until it is dry.

After every bath make sure to use some shower cleaners.

Fabric is better than plastic in resisting mold growth. Cloth liners are really a better option if you are trying to deal with mold growth. Apart from their “technical” functionality, they generally look better.

Alternatively you can move away from curtains to glass. Personally I think glass can be dangerous but it is an option if you can handle it well.

Alcohol can also do a great job in removing the mold – just as long as you can handle the odor.

Another tip is simply to spray the curtain with water every time you finish taking a shower.

Alternatively you can just get an anti-mold shower curtain. These are not 100% guaranteed to prevent the mold and mildew but they can help prevent it. You can find striped shower curtain with brown and orange in it  not to say these are your only options. You can find more options on different sites including Amazon.com and findshowercurtains.com to name just a few I have used.
