Wash Your Shower Curtain
Thanks to poor air circulation and humidity, your bathroom is the ideal breeding ground for mould. It’s only a matter of time before the inside of your shower curtain starts showing mould or mildew stains. In fact, when the conditions are right, mould can appear quickly—sometimes within 24-48 hours. Mould on a shower curtain is unsightly and even potentially dangerous. If not removed, mould will grow and spread, potentially contributing to respiratory illness and aggravating asthma and allergies. Mould often appears as tiny black spots, but can also be white or green. No matter the colour, it’s got to go!
Simply follow these steps:
Remove the curtain, bring it outside, and lay it flat (mould-side up).
Mix 2 cups of hydrogen peroxide with 1 cup of water in a spray bottle or use Oxygen PlusTM with Lavender Essential Oil
Thoroughly spray the curtain, paying special attention to the mouldy areas.
Let the curtain sit for 30 minutes.
Scrub the fabric with a soft brush to remove the mould.
Rinse with warm water.
What exactly is hydrogen peroxide? Chemically speaking, hydrogen peroxide (H202) is very similar in composition to water (H20)—the only difference is hydrogen peroxide has an extra molecule of oxygen. Although it’s a chemical, hydrogen peroxide is gentle and breaks down into two natural elements: water and oxygen. Containing no chlorine, alcohols, acids, or other dangerous chemical additives, hydrogen peroxide is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and safe to use around your whole family, including your pets.
