How often do you clean your shower curtain or shower curtain liner?
While this may seem like a trivial task, it really is something you should add to your cleaning list. Think about how often the shower is used in your home. Every time water runs in the shower, the possibilities for germs, lime scale build-up and mold increase.
Ideally, you should wash your shower curtain and liner once a month. While it may seem like anything that has to do with cleaning your bathroom is the worst household chore, cleaning these items could be easier than you think!
You can clean your shower liner with a rag and baking soda. Just sprinkle baking soda on the cloth, dampen it with water, and scrub the entire liner with the solution. Rinse the liner with lukewarm water and repeat until it is free of all traces of soap and water. You can also treat the shower liner with all-purpose cleaner and a rag, no need to remove the liner from the shower rod for small stains. However, better to change the entire liner and buy a new one if there are a lot of stains. They are generally not expensive.
As for the shower curtain, it can be thrown directly into the washer. Put a few towels in it and heat it in hot water on the gentle cycle with your regular laundry detergent. Then let it hang to dry.
