How do I Clean Polyester Shower Curtains?

Shower curtains come in a variety of materials, a common one being polyester. Since shower curtains are regularly in contact with water, they become susceptible to stains, whether by a result of mineral deposits from hard water or even by mould growth. Polyester requires special care, as it's made from petroleum-based fibres that can melt under high temperatures. While it takes special care to clean polyester, it doesn't necessarily mean it takes a lot of work.

  1. 1

    Take the polyester shower curtain off the curtain rack.

  2. 2

    Put the shower curtain in the washer. Wash the curtain with cold water on the delicate setting. You can use normal washer detergent as the cleaning agent.

  3. 3

    Dry the curtain at low heat on your dryer's "tumble dry" setting. If you have a clothesline, you can also let the shower curtain air dry outdoors.

  4. 4

    Iron the curtain on low heat if you need to remove wrinkles. Be extremely cautious when ironing polyester, as it's easy to burn.
