Money Saving Tip of the Day - Ewww, gross! Don't look down

If you have a shared bathroom with more than a couple of family members, don't pretend like you don't know what I'm talking about. Yep, I've pointed out that nasty 2 inches at the bottom of your shower curtain. If not for the mildew build-up in the corner of the tub, the liner in our shower stall would be reason number one we put "clean bathtub" at the bottom of the chore list. But let's take the ickyness out of this putrefied mess!

1) Remove your liner
2) Toss it in your clothes washer
3) Set to hot wash
4) Throw in just a dollop of detergent & start machine
5) Read a book, drink a cup of coffee, take a nap
6) When liner is washed, remove from washer and hang in shower immediately (do not dry - I didn't try this but I can't imagine the heat of the dryer would be good on the plastic)
7) Step back and admire your back breaking work!
8) Now, back to that book...  :)

P.S. Don't forget to toss the cost of a replacement liner into the savings account!

  1. A little spray bleach in a bottle will also take care of that problem!
