Baking soda cleaning tip for shower curtains
Bathrooms need to be cleaned regularly with lots of areas to tackle.
If cleaning a shower, it is important not to forget about the shower curtain.
This can hold onto dirt and grime but luckily, an expert shared an affordable way to freshen it up.
Bathroom expert Kerry Hale from Mira Showers explained baking soda can be used in lieu of expensive cleaning products.
Baking soda can be used for cleaning
She said: "Cleaning a shower curtain doesn’t have to be a time-consuming task.
"All you need are a couple of basic household products, and your shower curtain will be looking as good as new.
"For best results dampen a clean microfibre cloth and sprinkle a layer of baking soda over it, then use the cloth to scrub down the curtain focusing on removing most of the grime and dirt.
"Using a microfibre cloth can be the best way to tackle stains and leave the curtain looking as good as new."
Baking soda is also an affordable alternative to cleaning products. Bicarbonate of soda can be picked up for 65p in Tesco.
Kerry continued: "Leave the baking soda to set in the stains, then after a couple of minutes take a warm damp cloth and use it to scrub away all the baking soda and water.
"You may need to rinse the cloth and repeat to ensure that no traces of baking soda remain."
The expert added that another option for cleaning the shower curtain is to put it in the washing machine.
Some shower curtains can be cleaned in the washing machine
She said: "Some shower curtains can be cleaned in the washing machine.
"Simply put the curtain in the machine and add one or two bath towels – these will help to scrub off the dirt and prevent the shower curtain from wrinkling and tearing.
"As well as adding the usual amount of laundry detergent, include one cup of baking soda to remove tough stains and wash on a gentle warm setting.
"When the washing machine switches to the rinse cycle, pour in a half cup to one cup of distilled white vinegar to ensure all the baking soda is removed.”LATEST DEVELOPMENTS
