How do I clean a vinyl shower curtain without a washing machine?

Shower Curtain

Bobbie asks:

Any tips on a good way to clean a vinyl shower curtain without using a washing machine? Can I soak it in the tub with something? Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
Would soaking it with baking soda, vinegar, detergent, some combo…etc, help?

  1. If this is just a cheapo shower curtain liner, just toss it and buy a new one. They only cost like $ 2. If this is a “fancy” one with a pattern or something, fill the tub with water and maybe a 1/4 bottle of bleach and let it soak for an hour. Then drain and rinse. Then buy a cheap, clear liner that can be throw away to keep the good curtain clean.

  2. The easiest way that I have found is to spread it out on the deck floor, wet it, put a drop or two of liquid cleanser on it, and sponge mop it. Then I drape it across the deck rail in the sun for a few minutes. It dries nice, neat, and wrinkle free.

  3. Bam and elbow grease. Would be much easier to get a new one. Try soaking it in vinegar and oxy clean first in the tub with a little hot water.

  4. I take mine down, lay it flat on the floor and use some “elbow grease”, which is an English term for a bit of physical work. If you use washing up liquid or soap powder, with water of course, you will find it cleans easily. Rinse it after, job done in 5 minutes or so.
