How to clean mould from a a shower curtain?

In my old house I use to have a glass shower, but I have recently moved and I haven't restored the bathroom yet. So, I have to struggle with a shower curtain that cannot never get dried since I have two sporty children who take too many showers. Therefore, the curtain, even if quite new, is full of small stains of mould that I would like to remove. How can I do?

If you have mildew on the shower curtain plastic, remove it with a little quantity of bicarbonate: in a bowl dissolve 5 tablespoons of bicarbonate in 5 litres of warm water. Brush the curtain (but you can do the same on the shower mat as well and on all those parts that need a similar treatment) using the non-abrasive part of the sponge, so that the mould begins to absorb the solution. Then start rubbing using the rough side of the sponge. If there are stubborn stains, rub with lemon juice.

If you want you can even wash it in the washing machine: put it in the washing machine along with two bath towels, use 1/2 cup of normal laundry detergent and 1/2 of bicarbonate, take a complete wash at 30 °, but without spin, then immediately hang the curtain.

I do not agree with the previous suggestion (making a washing machine for a curtain is an exaggerated waste of energy) and I don't like using bleach to remove mildew stains from my curtain. As I told you, I prefer natural solutions. And I've just found another recipe: hand wash the curtain with a solution of water and vinegar in equal parts, and a few drops of lavender essential oil (lavender scents and has fungicidal properties). Alternatively you can use water with salt: both solutions are prevent the formation of mould.

Here is a recipe for making a solution to be sprayed on the shower curtains or walls with mould stains:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 8-10 drops of citrus seed extract (grapefruit, orange)
  • 2 teaspoons of essential oil of juniper (with antibacterial and fungicidal properties)
  • 2 teaspoons of essential oil of Tea Tree (fungicidal, antibiotic, antiviral and antibacterial properties)
  • 4 drops of essential oil of juniper (antibacterial and fungicidal properties).

Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle and spray on all areas that need to be cleaned from mould. Do not rinse, let dry before using the shower (otherwise you will waste the solution).
