Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to make your shower curtain mold resistant. If you have mold that builds up in your shower if it gets on the tile what you want to do is open your shower curtain and let it air out every time you get out of the shower. Well when you do this, the shower curtains cripple up and it's more likely to hover mold and grumble because it will stay moist for longer. So, I say keep a bottle of bleach water in your bath room. If you add about a table spoon of bleach to a quart of water, this is enough bleach to keep your mold problem under control. You want your shower curtain to be mold resistant. Once a week spray it down with bleach water. This goes for the rest of your tub. If you want to spray the title and things like this if you just spray them once a week, it will kill any existing mold and allow you to scrub the mold away and it will prevent mold from growing in the future. Mold cannot grow when there's bleach around period. There are a very few things that I use bleach for. Usually I try to go the natural route and use vinegar and things like that but it is necessary to have in your home for things like this. The aroma of the bleach once a week is going to be a lot less harmful than black mold that maybe growing in your house. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that's how you make a shower curtain mold resistant.
