The Actual Right Way To Clean Shower Curtains, Liners, and Shower Doors

Today’s to-do list, what you’re going to have for breakfast, whether or not you packed the kid’s lunch—there’s a lot you’re likely thinking about in the shower. What’s probably not on your mind? Cleaning your shower curtain liner. Because they’re prone to buildup and mildew, it’s important to treat and clean them once a month. Here’s how.

For Fabric Curtains

Step 1: Pretreat

Remove mildew and heavy build up with a soak of two capfuls of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative and hot water. Soak for 30 minutes.

Step 2: Machine Wash

Select the normal cycle and hot water, then add two capfuls of Signature Detergent. For an added boost of clean and brightness, add two more capfuls of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative.

Step 3: Hang to dry

For Plastic/Vinyl Shower Liners

Step 1: Remove Hooks

Take your shower curtain off the rod and remove all the hooks.

Step 2: Treat Stains

If your curtain is heavily soiled, remove stains by putting Stain Solution onto the area, and using a Stain Brush work the product into the curtain. Then, draw a bath of hot water + 2 capfuls of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative and soak the curtain in the solution for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Machine Wash

Yup! You're plastic or vinyl shower curtain can go in the washing machine! Use a capful of Signature Detergent and spin on a normal setting.

Step 4: Dry

Shake it out, then hang your curtain to dry. Never put it in the dryer.

Step 5: Maintain

Because mildew breeds in damp, warm areas, it’s important to keep things dry. After showering, keep the shower liner inside the tub and the curtain outside of it so that air can move between the two. Then crack open a window to allow moisture to escape from the bathroom. Spritzing the shower curtain liner with Scented Vinegar after each shower will also help to keep mildew away. Stash a bottle in your bathroom.

For Shower Doors

Step 1: Mix Your Solution

Create a 50/50 solution of Scented Vinegar and hot water, then mix in a squirt of All-Purpose Cleaning Concentrate or Dish Detergent.

Step 2: Scrub & Spray

Saturate the shower doors and let sit for 15-20 minutes, then scrub with a Scrub Brush or Linen Knit Cloth. Rinse clean with plain water. For heavy buildup, repeat the application process as needed. Finish by spraying with Glass & Mirror Cleaner and polish with a Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth.
