Machine Wash a Plastic or Vinyl Shower Curtain

When washing a plastic or vinyl shower curtain, it is important to use the gentle cycle and warm rather than cold water. Otherwise the shower curtain can get torn or cracked. Cold water makes vinyl stiffen up, so it damages more easily. Warm water makes it flexible and elastic.
Put a few towels or rugs together with your curtain and add a half cup of detergent and the same amount of bleach. Adding rugs creates a “scrubbing action” on the surface of a shower curtain which helps to remove the contamination much more effectively.
This method will help you to get rid of mold, mildew, soap scum, and even hard water spots on your shower curtain. Once the washing machine has completed its full cycle – your shower curtain is ready to come out like new!
