Homemade Cleaners for Shower Curtains

Homemade Cleaners for Shower Curtains

Method A

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • A few cups of distilled white vinegar
  • A scoop of oxygen bleach along with a sustainable laundry detergent
  • Some hot water
  • Essential oil
  • Dishwashing liquid

Instructions on how to prepare the homemade cleaner:

Step 1: You start by pouring a cup of distilled white vinegar, a scoop of oxygen bleach along with an eco-friendly laundry detergent into the washing machine. Now, I know how costly can the green laundry detergents be; so, instead you can make your own laundry detergent and if you want to know how, click here. 

Now, throw in the shower curtains and then pour some hot water. To increase the scrubbing action, I strongly suggest you add a few dirty towels inside. And, then, right after washing, you can hang the shower curtain on the curtain rings and remember to spread it out as much as possible.

Step 2: Now, take a large bottle (opt for a spray bottle) and fill it with some distilled white vinegar and then add in around 3-6 drops of some antibacterial essential oil. I recommend eucalyptus, lavender, lemon or tea tree. Then, proceed by pouring some drops of a dishwashing liquid (it’s up to you to choose regular or eco-friendly one) and filling it all the way up with water.

Step 3: After you give a nice shake to the bottle, put the bottle in the bathroom. And, after each time of using the bathroom, just spray the mixture on the shower curtain.

Method B

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Cold Water
  • Laundry detergent
  • Hot water
  • A cup of table salt

Instructions on how to prepare the homemade cleaner:

Step 1: You start by pouring some cold water and laundry detergent into the washing machine. Once you’ve washed the shower curtain, remove it from the machine and lay it in a large basin or in a bathtub.

Step 2: Next, what you do is you fill the tub or basin with hot water –keep in mind that the hot water should cover the shower curtain – and add a cup of salt water to the hot water.

Step 3: Now, let the shower curtain soak in the salt water for around 1-2 hours.

Reviews:

“When I clean my shower curtains, my hands are always covered with gloves because with time and use bacteria is attached to objects and the bacteria or chemical can hurt the skin. Even if this is my go-to cleaning product, I have a specific routine that I stick to. You see, at the back of the curtain it is sticked with the water towards the cloth, and the hand is used as support. A cloth is used to not let the curtain slide. The other side which is in front, the sponge is frictioned in circles and straight ways to remove the bacteria. When the friction with the sponge is done, the detergent is removed with the cloth filled with water and frictioned towards the curtain as well. The bleach makes the detergent easier to fall. Buckets of water are helpful for the frontal part, and for the back simply carry the curtain close to the showerhead. If the curtain didn’t have texture and was flat I would use a non abrasive or a cloth. Abrasive sponges tend to leave scratches on metals and flat surfaces, so they should be used just for hard surface not smooth. At the end of the work the curtains are better dried with the cloth already squeezed. It is better that the curtain remains closed for ventilation. This is to avoid white marks which I guess are the tartar of water.” – From Claudia
