How to avoid mold on the shower curtain

A shower curtain is an essential accessory for any bathroom that prevents water from leaking onto the floor. However, due to the constant humidity and heat, mold often appears on it, which not only spoils the appearance of the curtain but can also be dangerous to health.

It can be extremely difficult to get rid of mold, so House Digest has shared a life hack that will help prevent it. Just one action will significantly reduce the risk of having to buy a new shower curtain.

Mold in the bathroom is quite common, especially if it is small and poorly ventilated. Fungi can affect walls, floors, etc. However, it's quite easy to get rid of mold on such surfaces with a cloth and a special product, which is not the case with a shower curtain.

To prevent mold, it is often recommended to wipe the curtain with a towel or blow dry it, but this still does not solve the problem, because sooner or later mold will appear on the bottom, on the part of the fabric that lies on the floor. Therefore, there is only one way out.

What to do with a shower curtain to prevent mold from forming on it

When the shower curtain touches the floor, it not only collects various bacteria but also retains moisture longer. A shower curtain that is too long is one of the most common causes of mold growth.

So, if your curtain is too long and wide, it's worth trimming it. All you need is a pencil, a measuring tape, scissors, and a sewing machine. You can also use the services of an atelier.

Make sure that the curtain hangs over the edge of the bathtub by about 20 centimeters. This will be enough to prevent water from splashing all over the room, and the fabric will dry quickly and not collect dirt on the floor.

Of course, this will not help to completely avoid the appearance of mold. You will still need to ventilate your bathroom. But with this life hack, there will be much less mold and it will appear much less often.
