You might consider yourself somewhat of a cleaning ninja when it comes to just about every surface and object in your home, but what about when it really comes down to the nitty gritty? Your shower curtain serves several purposes in your bathroom. It is not only an expression of your personal decor, but also reduces the chance of mold or mildew growth in your bathroom by keeping the water from the shower right where it belongs. But every once in a while, your shower curtain can go unnoticed and get a little dingy.
Here are a few tips and tricks on how to remove rust stains from shower curtains.
To clean your shower curtain as a whole, take it down off the rod and stick it in your washing machine. Add 2 to 3 white towels and a cup of chlorine bleach. Do not use regular laundry detergent. Allow the washing machine to fill up halfway with cold water, and then stop to let it soak for an hour. Turn it back on after an hour has passed and allow it to finish. After it is completely done carefully take it out of the washing machine and hang back up in the shower to drip dry.
If all that your shower curtain requires is just a little spot cleaning, take the curtain down off the rod, and lie it down on a flat surface, with the stained area facing upwards. Dampen a clean cloth in pure white vinegar, and slightly press and then leave the saturated cloth to sit applied to the area needing attention. Leave the vinegar-soaked cloth to sit over the stain for about an hour and afterwords scrub the stain a little, and repeat the process until it is gone.
It may not happen often, but knowing how to remove rust stains from shower curtains can be a useful bit of information once or twice. In the midst of spring cleaning, when it comes time to clean the shower, these tips and tricks will come in very handy to maintain a sparkling clean and safe bathroom.
