2. Bathroom Equipment. If bathroom equipment is damaged, it can humid the air in the bathroom. That's why, any malfunction of the bathroom equipment must be fixed as soon as possible. After taking a shower or a bath, please dry the protective glass or plastic curtains. The bath itself, should be wiped with a soft dry cloth, after every use, to avoid appearing mold and bacteria.

Before cleaning the bathroom equipment, please carefully read the instructions from its manufacturer. If you do not bring plumbing to the point of desolation, it is enough to take advantage of a weak solution of baby toilet soap, used for the delicate skin of the child.

According to the experience of the GoHouseKeeper, it will take about 10-20 minutes in your washing machine to clean your shower curtain or a plastic linear from mildew.

You need to wash your shower curtain on the high water level with a towel in order to make a cleaning process effective. Add a standard amount of detergent and use delicate-wash cycle. It will help to remove mold, which appears due to the remaining water on a shower curtain. If you want to use the dryer, set only air or low heat, or just hang your curtain to dry. Please read the instructions on a care label if your linear is decorative.
