Then an RVer who came through Hidden Valley shared with me the vinegar trick. I was skeptical and thought bleach would be much more sanitizing but it turns out that this vinegar trick has been all over Pinterest and google for some time...I was just in the dark. It works like a dream and you don't even need to wear all white to avoid bleach splashes on your duds in the process. But alas, the silly thing STILL needs to be wrestled down off the pole several times a year. Till now (or even much earlier if you discovered this trick before me.) Best of all this trick involves no harsh and mysterious chemicals. This method will clean and prevent mildew from returning.
What You’ll Need
– Table salt
– Laundry detergent
- Wash your shower curtain in your washing machine. I use a mix of ½ the recommended amount of laundry detergent and 1 cup of vinegar, and add towels to the load for extra scrubbing.
- Put the washed shower curtain in your clean tub. Cover with hot water, and add 1 cup of salt to the water as it runs.
- Stir the water so the salt dissolves and covers the shower curtain. Soak for three hours, then hang to dry.
