You may have purchased this rain screen for several reasons. One reason could be to get a cleaner looking shower curtain. Another reason could be to do away with the hassle of cleaning one after every use.

Then again, some homeowners want to get rid of their look, and scrub it up for another use. It could also be because they want to see if it can be re-painted. Either way, knowing how to clean plastic shower curtain liner will help you avoid making any major mistakes.

The first thing you’ll need to know is how to remove the material. Here are the main tools you’ll need. A towel or rag, ammonia, and a magnifying glass. These items can be found at your local grocery store.

Rinse out the area where the rain screen is installed. You can do this by putting the damp rag on a flat surface and allowing it to sit for about twenty minutes. This will allow the area to dry. Once the area is dry, use the ammonia on the area in order to sanitize it.

Make sure that you clean off the area where the ammonia bleach solution is going to sit. Once the area is completely dried, you can begin to scrub it off. Work in small sections and scrub from the outside in.

You’ll want to use different surfaces for the parts you want to clean. Use a rag on the side of the screen and a sponge on the inside. If you find a lump, use a pincer to scrape it off. Once the lump is removed, spray with the ammonia bleach solution and rub it off with a sponge.

Wipe the area with a cloth to remove any residue that the ammonia might have left behind. If there are any bubbles, use a toothbrush to remove them. Then wipe the area with a dry rag. You will now have a clean area to continue cleaning the rest of the area.

Use a cleaner that is meant for cleaning the material. Some are available at your local grocery store and others can be found online. Find the one that have the right instructions and how to use information before you begin to clean the material.

When using this cleaner, you’ll need to allow it to sit for at least one hour and in some cases two hours before you start scrubbing the area with the scrub brush. Then, use the ammonia bleach solution to wash the material. Wash the material down the outside. Use a cotton swab to clear the areas that you have scrubbed.

Once you have cleared the area, use a dry cloth to wipe down the area to be cleaned. Rinse the area with water and dry it thoroughly. Repeat the steps if there are areas left uncovered.
