So, I caved and bought a plastic shower curtain after I said I wouldn't. I really liked the shower doors in the old place better and as much as I want to, I really can't justify replacing the showers in the new ho use just because I don't like the style.<br><br>
The cloth one I originally got was leaking enough that there was always a smallish flood in the bathroom and this can't be safe especially trying to get out of the shower with a babe in my arms.<br><br>
So, I have vowed never to buy another shower curtain. I better keep this one whole enough that my children's children are still showering in a bathroom using this shower curtain! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
So the question becomes, how does one wash it? It's starting to get some hard water spots and there's that kind of pink mildew that grows in wet places showing up on one corner.<br><br>
Can I put it in the washer? That would be ideal but I'm afraid it wouldn't get very clean. I tried washing it by hand but I wasn't sure what to use and my microfiber cloth didn't seem to be making a huge difference.<br><br>
Any advice for a shower curtain n00b?

I just bought a new curtain. Our previous one only lasted 2yrs. I had tried scrubbing it clean and the print was coming off.<br><br>
Now I try to towel dry it after showering and I will only clean it by soaking.<br><br>
I too have hard water and will try a vinegar soak.
