I learned this little tip from my friend Allison to renew a yucky-looking plastic or vinyl or PEVA (whatever that is) shower curtain.
When you are about ready to throw that old, mineral-crusted curtain, simply throw it in your washing machine with some laundry detergent and some bleach. Run it through a normal wash cycle, pull it out, and Voila! Like new! If the washer doesn’t do the job, you’re out nothing but a little soap and water. If it looks better, you saved yourself at least $5 and a trip to the store!
I tried this for the first time this summer, and was amazed at the results. While my 2-year-old curtain didn’t look new exactly, it looked like a month old instead of it’s 2 years, which I considered a HUGE improvement!
