Can You Wash a Plastic Shower Curtain?

Vinegar Tip #7

    Shower Curtains: Put your plastic shower curtain in the wash with two white bath towels. Add your detergent with just a little bit of bleach. Add 1 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle. This will help keep it from getting mildew again.


My Verdict: After following the directions my shower curtain came out mostly clean. I did not use bleach. I have well water and so I have a lot of iron build up on my shower curtains. Almost all the iron was gone. I did not know that you could wash plastic shower curtains. When my shower curtain starts getting red from iron I typically toss it and buy a new cheap one. So, I am glad that I found a way to save some money and make my curtains last longer. As for vinegar helping with mildew build up, only time will tell.

Do you throw out your plastic shower curtains or do you clean them? If you clean them what do you use?
