Getting rid of mold/mildew on your shower curtain liner...Cool trick?

 Do you ever get a yucky pink moldy/mildewy buildup on your shower curtain?  (You don't have to answer that)  If this sounds familiar, I have a solution for you!

(I thought about putting putting a picture here of a nasty pink-mold-covered shower curtain...but that's a little gross...I'm sure you can imagine it just fine)

I encountered this very problem myself just last week. As we were unpacking some of our boxes, I pulled out our old shower curtain liner (it was nice enough quality to think twice about throwing it away when we were packing up our apartment) and to my dismay, the liner was not magically clean again after months of being packed up.  I refused to scrub the curtain by hand because...gross! So as a last resort before giving up and just throwing it away, I came up with a solution.

This may not be a revolutionary idea to some, but for me, I was totally thinkin' outside the box!  Here's what you do:

1. Throw your curtain into your washing machine, preferably with some white towels (to get some scrubbing action)
2. Put in a little bit of laundry soap
3. Put in 1/2 cup to 1 cup of bleach
4. Start your washer and just run it like a regular load of laundry

My shower curtain liner came out almost like new, and with ZERO signs of any mold/mildew that had been on it.

Here's my proof:




Enjoy your clean, good-as-new shower curtain liner! :)
