Shower Curtain/Liner Cleaning

Before you read any further I am apologizing for the disgusting graphic photos you are about to see.
That's right. I took pictures of my mildew, soap scum covered shower curtain liner.
I always buy a new one about once a year..or two. They all say that they are 100% mildew free yadda yadda yadda...
My husband works in printing so he is always covered in ink when he gets home and showers right away. It just adds nasty colors to our shower curtain liner.
I knew there had to be a way to clean the liner. A simple way. I've tried the shower sprays and it just never works for us. I did some research on what cuts through soap scum and found out that vinegar does the trick (and its cheap too!)
After debating it for a few days I went ahead and gave it a go. I tossed the shower curtain and the plastic liner into my washing machine! I was so nervous that it would tear, or melt or destroy my washing machine. But surprise surprise!! It came out (almost) like new!!
I had some hair dye that splattered onto the shower curtain and thought it would be good to toss it in with the liner to help use as something for the liner to rub against during the wash.

I put the curtain and the liner in my washing machine on the warm cycle.
I added some liquid laundry detergent and one cup of white vinegar to fight the soap scum.
When the cycle was over, I put them back on the hooks and hung it back up in the tub to dry.

Viola!
