What to do with an old shower curtain

A shower curtain is essential for protecting the floor and walls from water. Firstly, hard water causes limescale, and secondly, excessive humidity leads to the growth of pathogenic fungi.

If the bathroom is not properly ventilated, there is a chance that the shower curtain will become moldy over time - in which case it is better to get rid of it. However, Lifehacker magazine has told us about interesting ways to use an old shower curtain in everyday life.

Ways to reuse a shower curtain

The curtain can be used during outdoor trips. You need to put it under a picnic blanket - the dense material will not allow excess moisture to pass through.

It is also recommended to use the curtain as a rug under a high chair. Babies often spill food, and by placing a curtain under the high chair, you can protect the carpet or parquet from dirt.

Housewives use the curtain as a rag, and practical owners take it to the garage because they know that the dense material will come in handy when repairing a car.

Another option is to make a rug for children out of the curtain (which, by the way, can even be painted).

You can take the curtain with you on a camping trip or use it as a protective mattress.

Creative people can even create an interesting fancy dress costume from the curtain.

An equally creative option is a large tic-tac-toe board that can be placed in the backyard, using duct tape to create lines and a Frisbee (or other flat object) of different colors as markers.

By the way, a study by Safe Home found that shower curtains contain 60 times more germs than toilet seats. It is best to clean the curtains by hand. Read the article to find out which available ingredients will help you quickly clean and disinfect the surface.
