I have put mine in the washer more than once. It’s not a problem. Also, you will want to add a little bleach to kill the mold. If you don’t feel like taking the curtain down, you can try a bleach and water mixture in a spray bottle. Next time you buy a new shower curtain, look for a mold free one. They cost a little more but they do stay mold free longer than untreated ones, however, they are not mold free… especially with males in the house!

  1. Yes you can wash it in the machine on gentle cycle , and add a lil bleach and baking soda to the water befoe you put it in there , and you can wash some towels with it while you doing that…i have been washing mine for the past 2 years and it still look new

  2. I bought a fabric one about a year ago. It is great. Washes just like a sheet and has metal grommets on the top that will last forever. When it looks a bit dingy from the minerals I throw a little bleach in the wash water and it comes out white again. It cost under $ 20—and I used to buy 2 plastic ones a year due to tearing and mold. This one will last years.
    Hope that helps you.
