Here’s a question from one of my presentations. I love your questions, keep them coming!
“I enjoyed your presentation very much. I bought your package with the book and there are some great tips that I will be sure to use.
I have one problem that I could not find and I am wondering if you have a solution to getting mildew spots out of a cotton shower curtain. Unfortunately, it has blue, green and white stripes so I cannot just try bleach. Any helpful tip you have I would really appreciate.”
Thanks for the question. I think you should try working some old fashioned soap into the stain with a small brush. You could use Ivory if you have some and a small gentle brush. I’ve made some “stain lifters” that will soon be available on my site and you can see a picture of the brush I’m referring to. After brushing with the soap in a circular motion, use the brush and dip it into (or pour) some hydrogen peroxide onto the area. Keep brushing in a circle. Rinse and see how the stain is coming. Keep repeating until the stain is lifted. You can also let the mixture sit over night. Wash the curtain in the washing machine but don’t put it into the dryer until you KNOW the stain is gone. The heat from the dryer will set the stain.
