Hemp (a thick plant fiber) is yet another variety of natural material used to make shower curtains. One of its many advantages is that it is as mildew-resistant as vinyl; and as environment-friendly as cotton. Hemp naturally has antifungal and antibacterial properties, and hence, does not mildew easily. However, the only side effect of hemp is that it requires longer time to dry. Due to its absorbent properties, it tends to absorb water, and hence, needs extended drying.
Making a personalized shower curtain is a comparatively an easy project for enthusiastic do-it-yourselfers. All you need is a clean and plain shower curtain in either vinyl, plastic, or fabric. Among other requirements, you will need acrylic paint, a pencil, and your favorite monogram or logo. Firstly, get the monogram or logo blown up to a poster size. This can be accomplished at a copy shop without spending much money. Lay the curtain over the monogram poster and trace the outline of the letters or logo using a pencil. You might need a marker for tracing on the vinyl or fabric. Once, you are ready with the outline, fill in the letters with acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry completely and leave it overnight before hanging it in your bathroom. This way, you can personalize your curtain by painting your initials or the logo of your favorite sports team. Use your creativity to come up with your own ideas.
Never put vinyl curtains in washing machine when it is switched to 'hot' mode. Never dry them in the dryer. Both these practices can burn the curtains.
Hydrogen peroxide can be used for cleaning spots on the vinyl curtains. Apply it on a cotton ball and rub over the spot to clean it.
