How to Clean a Shower Curtain


Washing Cloth Curtain

If you have a decorative cloth shower curtain, cleaning it is a pretty easy task to tackle. Check the tag (here’s hoping you didn’t cut it off!) and find out if you need to gently wash or take to the dry cleaners. If you can wash in your machine at home, throw it in with your delicates. Since it’s a decorative item, it may not be as sturdy as more functional products, so if you want the curtain to last it’s important to wash your shower curtain in the delicate cycle – and use half the amount of detergent you normally would.
