Do You Know How Often You Should Wash Your Shower Curtain?

December 2, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi
shefinds | Style

Have you ever cleaned your shower curtain? I’m assuming the answer is no. It’s obvious that you have to replace a shower liner because they get so grimy, but the thought of washing the decorative curtain is something most people completely forget about.

If you don’t ever wash your shower curtain, chances are it has soap/scum buildup, plus mold and mildew stains. Mold and mildew aren’t ideal for our health and can actually get you sick if you’re exposed to it too much. On that note, it’s important to remove your shower curtain and wash it about once a month.

Read the instructions on the curtain so you use the proper care method when washing. It’s best to use hot water (unless care instructions say otherwise) to kill any bacteria that can be trapped in the curtain’s fibers. If your shower curtain can’t go in the dryer, simply hang it back on the rods to air dry. You can also spray or soak your shower curtain in water and vinegar. The vinegar solution will help prevent mildew and mold from growing.

Remember to replace your shower liner regularly and wash the curtain once a month!
