November 02, 2021

When you think about cleaning your bathroom, the first places you think to clean are often your sink, toilet, shower, and bathtub. But how often are you cleaning your shower curtain and liner? According to Molly Maid, to keep your shower curtain and liner mildew-free, both the curtain and liner should be cleaned thoroughly once a month according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Read on to learn the ways you can care for your shower curtain, from selecting the best fabric for your space to cleaning tips to keep your curtain clean.

Selecting the Perfect Shower Curtain 

When selecting a shower curtain for your bathroom there are a few elements to keep in mind to get the desired look and longest life out of your curtain. First, consider the material. The most popular fabrics used for shower curtains are nylon and polyester because they are both inexpensive and moisture resistant compared to other fabric options. Cotton shower curtains provide an elegant look to your bathroom, however, they are less moisture resistant and may require more frequent cleanings. When using a polyester, nylon or cotton curtain, it is important to make sure that you purchase vinyl curtain liner to protect the fabric from excess mildew. After selecting your material, consider the design of your bathroom. Shower curtains come in a variety of colors and patterns allowing you to customize your space and add a pop of color.
