All our shower curtains are as different in design as in style, too. Our vinyl shower curtains are treated with a chemical biocide that makes them mold and mildew resistant. Fabric curtains, however, are not treated with this chemical as it would wash out after just a few washings. Many of our vinyl shower curtains and liners are environmentally friendly; they are identified by a PEVA or EVA designation. Also, vinyl shower curtains are naturally waterproof. Even if you aim the nozzle directly at the curtain no water will pass through it, though it will drip down and pool under it. Many fabric curtains are treated to be water repellant. The water will bead and run down the length of the curtain but water will pass through it if aimed directly at the curtain.
Keep these things in mind when looking for shower curtains. High-traffic showers or kids' showers might benefit from vinyl curtains, such as those by JoJo Designs, whereas a guest bathroom might suffice with a fabric curtain. Also, don't forget to pair your new shower curtain with matching bath towel sets and rugs by brands such as Creative Bath, Veratex, Avanti, Bacova, and Blonder.How To Care For Shower Curtains
Keeping your shower curtains clean can be a challenge. They are constantly assaulted by moisture and heat, which can cause mold and mildew. Regular showers deposit soap residue on the curtains, which attracts and traps dirt. If not properly cleaned, shower curtains can not only become unsightly, they can smell.
Before you attempt to clean your shower curtain, check the care label. Shower curtains are made from a wide range of materials and may require different care. Most curtains, however, can be washed in your washing machine with regular detergent. If the label doesn’t prohibit it, you can add a cup of regular chlorine bleach to the wash cycle to kill any mold or mildew and to deodorize it. If you cannot use bleach, substitute a cup of baking soda instead. Be sure to use warm or cold water, never hot—hot water can melt plastic shower curtains.
Most shower curtains, especially plastic ones, should not be placed in the dryer. Check the care label for specific instructions. The best method is to hang your clean shower curtain back in the bathroom to drip dry.
Preventing mold and mildew is key. You can use one of those commercial shower sprays, but if you are adverse to harsh chemicals in your shower, there are some natural remedies you can try. Shower curtains can be soaked in a mixture of white vinegar and water to prevent mildew. This can be done in your washing machine. After soaking, spin and hang to dry.Some information about Modern Fabric Shower Curtains, Mold and Mildew:
All vinyl shower curtains are treated with a biocide that makes them
resistant to the formation of mold and mildew. In the event that any mold appears, it is due to the fact that soap scum has
been allowed to accumulate on the surface of the curtain. The scum is a food source for the mold. Attention to the care
instructions will add to the overall life and appearance of the vinyl product.
Fabric shower curtains are NOT treated with a biocide because it would wash out after only two to three washings
and we therefore consider it pointless! Once again, the culprit is the soap scum which is a food source for the bacteria (mold
& mildew). Following our care instructions, will give you problem free and hygienic product. Oxygen bleach is an excellent
product that helps to eliminate tiny air-borne mold spores that cling to the fabric fibers.
Waterproof shower curtains : All vinyl shower curtains are 100% waterproof which means that water cannot migrate through the
Water repellent shower curtains : Most fabric shower curtains require no Shower Curtain Liner because they are treated with a water repellent
finish. With this treatment, water will “bead” off the curtain. It is not recommended that a shower nozzle be aimed directly
towards the fabric, as some water can migrate through the curtain.
You will always extend the usable life of your fabric shower curtain if you protect it with a shower curtain liner.
