Shower care

If your shower has curtains, be sure to close them when you're done showering. Not only does it look better that way, but when the curtain is left open, water stands in the folds where the curtain touches itself, and mildew grows there. If you get in the habit of closing the curtain, you will have to clean it far less frequently. When you do clean it, you can just take it down and put it in the washer on gentle cycle with a little bleach.

If you have glass shower doors, get a squeegee and wipe the water off of the doors after you turn off the shower but before you get out. Again, this will help prevent mildew from growing, plus (for clear glass) eliminate unsightly water spots.
