DIY Shower Curtain Mildew Solution
Cloth shower curtains are better for you and the environment than their PVC counterparts. Shower curtains made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) contains volatile organic compounds that give off toxic fumes, especially when the product is new. For routine cleaning, cloth shower curtains can be run through the clothes washer.
To take care of a mildewy shower curtain, whether cloth or PVC, wash it in the bathtub with warm water and a cup of baking soda. Rinse well then rub with half a lemon, squeezing to release extra juice on the problem areas. Hang outside to dry in the sun. Enjoy your clean, mildew-free shower curtains!
