3 Ways to Repurpose Plastic Shower Curtains

Unfortunately, most recycling facilities do not recycle plastic shower curtains because most are made of PVC. It can compromise the chemical makeup of plastics that are recyclable.

1. Save it for a rainy day when you and your kids are painting or working on a messy project.

2. And speaking of painting, use it as a drop cloth for when you are painting a room or hallway.

3. Stay dry at picnics. You can use it underneath your blanket to prevent dew or rain soaked grass from seeping through.

Save $$ and prolong the life of your plastic shower curtain by using these ways to clean it.

1. You can throw it in the washer with detergent and baking soda.

2. Black spores? A few squirts from spray bottle filled with diluted bleach will clear it up in no time.

3. You can also fill your bathtub with Oxyclean and let it soak for a couple of hours, then rinse it off.

The cleaner you keep your plastic shower curtain, the less you will have to purchase in the future.
