Hookless shower curtain liner mold

auntsisJune 18, 2014

I love my Hookless shower curtain but the fabric liner gets mold where the bottom touches the tub. It is a small bathroom with no window - I do run the fan during an after showering.

The mold starts where the edge of the tub is and goes down to the hem.

Got any ideas how to deal with this?

I have the same problem. First, to help prevent it I loop the bottom part of the curtain through the hose for the handheld showerhead for a while to let it dry a bit. Then I pull it down and let it hang outside the tub. Helps a lot. When it eventually gets a bit moldy I soak the bottom in bleach. Tried Oxyclean and other things but only bleach worked. Then I rinse it and wash it in the machine with the bath rugs. Comes out very clean.

I just use a white hookless curtain made of polyester - I don't use a second curtain. Found that I had more mold with the second layer of curtain and my bathroom is not that fancy.

Don't know how effective this will be, but Home Depot sells a Mold preventative product (NOT BLEACH based) that MIGHT help reduce recurrences of mold. I use it from time to time on the boot in my FL washer. The boot NEVER gets moldy, after several years of use. "Moldcontrol" is the product name.
