Sometimes you just want to freshen up your home decor without taking on a complete makeover of your home, and one of the easiest and simplest ways is to refresh your bathroom. Replacing your bathroom curtains is a great way to redo your bathroom decor. You can even get a matching bath mat, bath rug, and bath towels to ensure all your bathroom accessories match. You'll be amazed at how different and fresh it feels in there!
Shower curtains especially can develop mildew and should be replaced more often than we think. Remember to get a new shower curtain liner when you replace these too, so you have a totally fresh start. It won't cause a world of hurt to your credit card, either! It's an inexpensive way to keep your bathroom clean and give it a breath of new life.
How to Clean a Plastic Shower Curtain
In case you didn't know, you can wash a plastic shower curtain! My college dorm had a weekly deep clean, and the fantastic cleaning staff often cleaned the plastic curtain with a powerful spraying tool and bleach. I often thought, "There's got to be an easier way." And there is. You can put many plastic curtains in the washer safely, just be sure never to put them in the dryer.
Molly Maid says, "Washing a plastic shower curtain requires you to add either a half cup of color-safe bleach, detergent, vinegar or baking soda to your washing cycle along with a few towels on a cool setting."
