Scrub-A-Dub-Dub: Keep Your Shower Curtain Clean!

Your shower curtain. It keeps hot water in and peeping eyes out, but often gets overlooked when it’s time to clean your bathroom. Don’t check off that chore until your curtain is clean, too! With every steamy shower, you’re adding a new layer of soap scum. You may not notice the first time, or even the fifth, but eventually your shower curtain will become caked with this hard-to-fight substance. To learn more about soap scum (and why it’s so tricky to clean), read: Be A Soap Scum Ninja.

Next time you scrub your toilet or wipe down your bathtub with disinfectant, take the time to spray both sides of your shower curtain, too. With this two minute chore you’ll prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

To make your own mold and mildew remover, mix 2 cups of water, 20 drops of tea tree oil, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and ½ teaspoon of non-toxic liquid dish soap into a spray bottle. Shake it up, and then spray liberally on the inside of your shower curtain. Boom! Clean curtain.

If soap scum stains have left your shower curtain beyond repair, it might be time for a bathroom makeover. Shower curtains are inexpensive and easy to switch out. Plus, since it’s a large item in a typically small room, a colorful curtain is an easy way to make a bold statement. Feeling simple? Choose white. Want something just for summer? Go for a bright floral pattern. The possibilities are almost endless.
