How do I remove creases from a new plastic shower curtain liner?

by Galvan


i buy new plastic liners for my shower curtains. They come folded in the package and when I hang them up the folded creases remain. I can never remove the folded creases. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance.

    Put them in your dryer for a few minutes

    Hi Galvan, use a blow dryer to slightly heat the creases. You'll need to be careful not to get too close or you may cause the plastic to melt. Another idea is to hang the curtain and then run the hottest water from your shower into the bathtub and close the bathroom door and let the whole room "steam". This should also help relax the creases in your curtain.

    I do as Jo G suggested..dryer for a few minutes! Have done this for years!

  • Wash it. Then pop in the dryer with a damp towel for a few minutes or hang out in the sun.

    Next time, try the "hotel style" fabric shower curtain liner. You might like them better.

    If you wash shower curtains or liners (yes even plastic shower curtains), before first use, they are less likely to mildew. Use vinegar in the rinse cup instead of fabric softener.

    Let the hot shower run on it for a few minutes. That will soften it and creases should let go.

  • A blow dryer should remove most of them.

    Amazing how pliable a shower curtain becomes when it is tossed in the dryer for a few mintues.
