Slimy Shower Curtain
June 23, 2017 1:08am CST
Our plastic shower curtains used to be slimy and sticky. Detergent and bleach never completely removed the reddish brown stains and tiny black spots at the bottom. When we got new shower curtains, I searched the net on how to avoid these. One was to stretch out the shower curtain so that it's always dry, so now I always check it when I go to the toilet. It was only this week that I tried the second tip and was relieved that it worked. It was to wash the plastic shower curtain with towels, detergent and baking soda in the washing machine. Do you have shower curtains or a glass partition? How do you clean it?

Good thing we don't have a shower partition. But in my parents, in the bathroom by the dining room, they have a shower curtain. But now they removed it. I don't know why. Maybe it's hard to wash too, I will suggest to them your advise that you learned from the internet.
We have shower curtains and we kept on changing once a stain appears. Like you, we had a hard time cleaning it. Now that you mentioned tips on how to clean it, maybe I should try it. But for now, our shower curtain is still new. I should wait when it gets slimy.
for now, tell everyone to stretch out the shower curtain after their shower. the key is to always keep it dry. when i started seeing the tiny black spots, that's when i tried washing it with the towels, detergent and baking soda.

We have the partition, but I don't think it's glass. Some kind of plastic, I think. That clear part isn't the hard part to keep clean, it's the metal around it and the bottom metal area where it's not easy to get as the doors slide. If anything I air out the bathroom as much as possible and wipe them down often. I don't like to use cleaning products with all the chemicals, so I use baking soda, vinegar and water.

When I used a shower curtain I bought cheap one and threw them out - no washing. We had glass doors and they are more work than I like - especially to clean the track. This house has a walk in tile shower - no curtain no door.
