If you’ve been wondering how to clean a shower curtain by hand, then the answer is simpler than you think. But before you do anything else, here are some things you need to know first.
To know how to clean a shower curtain by hand, you’ll need to be familiar with a few basics. The first thing you’ll need to do is think about your furniture and the rest of your bathroom. You don’t want to damage your bath or shower while trying to clean it.
If you are in the shower, place some old towels on a tray or a towel rack and cover it with something like a towel to keep the moisture from getting onto your furniture. The second thing you need to do is lift up the shower curtain as little as possible and run it under cold water. You will find that the shower curtain will probably flake out of shape if you use it full force on the shower rod, so lift it as little as possible and the water will penetrate deeper.
Next, you’ll need to rub some soap into the shower curtain. By rubbing soap into the curtain with a soft bristled brush, you’ll make the soap cling to the bristles and after a while, the soap will stick onto the rod itself. You can use a cloth to scrub the soap out of the rod, but make sure that you hold the rod and not touch it with the cloth.
Then, you can use an old toothbrush to gently scrub the rod. Don’t use too much pressure, but just enough to remove the soap, leaving it a little bit sticky.
As the rod cools down, you can slide it into the dryer for about five minutes. If the rod gets very hot, then you may need to use a hair dryer instead. After the five minutes, simply wipe the rod clean and you’re done.
One of the biggest mistakes I see people make when they are learning how to clean shower curtain by hand is that they do not give it enough time to cool off. If you wait until the last minute, you will end up damaging the rod instead of cleaning it.
If you are really confused by the step-by-step process of how to clean a shower curtain by hand, all you have to do is look at the picture above. You can follow exactly what I do in my kitchen, and I think you’ll be able to easily mimic it.
Buying a chair at a thrift store is a great way to save money and help you save the environment. It might seem like a lot of work to put a chair together, but that is the most important part. The chair is what will hold the shower rod in place, so make sure that it is strong enough to hold the weight of the rod.
After you get the chair together, lay it out on a piece of wood strip. Take a rag and clean the frame as you lay the chair on top of it. Also, remember to clean any ornaments or curtains that you may have with soap and water.
Now, after you have covered the frame with the other one, you can start putting the chair in place. This is the most difficult part, because you must make sure that the position of the chair is not at an angle, but rather centered perfectly between the frame and the rod.
This how to clean shower curtain by hand process is not always easy, but if you follow the directions carefully, it will be. Remember to have fun, and remember to take good care of your furniture!
