How to remove mold from a shower curtain quickly
Have you found some mould in your bathroom? If you have, you probably want to know how to get rid of it right away. Mould appearing in your shower or bathtub can appear to be pink, red, dark green and black. No matter what the colour, it's important to clean it right away so that it doesn't spread further and so that it doesn't end up making you sick. Black mould is the type of mould we need to be most cautious about as it causes the most harm to our health, but for people with asthma and compromised immune systems, any type of mould can be harmful to them. If you have glass shower doors, you've probably seen mould building up around the door tracks, and if you have a shower curtain, the mould usually grows on the lower part of the curtain where the water constantly hits. These clusters of mould form when the conditions are perfect for them to grow, so when there is a perfect amount of humidity and moisture present. The first thing to do is to clean it off as soon as possible and then prevent it from coming back.
This website, How To Remove Black Mold, has a ton of great information and cleaning tips on how to remove all sorts of mould from different places in your home. This cleaning tip will teach you specifically how to clean mould of any kind from your shower curtain using natural cleaners. First of all, you have to take your shower curtain off of the rod and take out any shower rings. You can clean your shower curtain outside, but just make sure you conceal the mouldy areas before you carry the curtain through your house so that you don't get them all over your home. Once outside, lay out the curtain on the driveway and then make a cleaner from two parts hydrogen peroxide to one part water and put it in a spray bottle to spray the cleaner all over the curtain. When you have a good layer of the spray on the shower curtain, just simply let it sit for 10 minutes or so to allow it to kill the mould spores. Then, make a paste of baking soda and water or borax and water and then use a brush to scrub the mould off of the shower curtain. Wear protective gear while you clean mould, you don't want to get it in your mouth or eyes or breathe in the spores. Rinse off the curtain and flip it over to repeat all of the steps on the other side. Let it dry in the sunlight and the sun will also kill the mould as well.
If you’re not able to go outside to clean your shower curtain, you can still clean it inside too. Use your bathtub to clean it by soaking it in either hydrogen peroxide or white distilled vinegar for 10 minutes or more and then scrub with the baking soda or borax to get rid of the mould. Rinse and hang to dry in a window where it can get full sunlight or in your bathroom and leave the light and fan on while it dries. You can also wash it in the washing machine, just add a half of a cup of baking soda or borax with half a cup of laundry detergent and wash it on gentle with a couple of towels to protect it and to give it some scrubbing action. Once it's out of the washing machine, just hang to air dry. To keep mould away from your shower curtain, just spray it regularly with the hydrogen peroxide spray.***
