It's important to remove mould quickly

Mould is a naturally occurring fungus, which can be toxic to both humans and our pets. This is why it's important to keep an eye out for mould on your curtains, even if you've cleaned them recently.

How to remove mould from curtains

The first step to cleaning mould off curtains is to remove as much as possible by either brushing or vacuuming. You then want to use a cleaning solution and water to dab the affected area.

When cleaning, one of the most important things to remember is that you want your curtains to be completely dry after you've finished.

This is because mould thrives in moist environments, and not drying your curtains can make it much quicker and easier for mould to return.

Will vinegar remove mould from curtains?

If you're wanting a natural solution to remove mould, vinegar is a good option. Vinegar is acidic and can be effective for cleaning tough areas.

The best way to apply vinegar to your curtains is by using a spray bottle as it creates a mist and applies light layers.

If you're concerned about vinegar staining the fabric, make sure to test it on a hard to see area beforehand. You can also mix it with water to dilute it if you need.

Tips for preventing mould growing on curtains


While curtains can be hung in any room, they're best suited to bedrooms, living areas and offices as this reduces their exposure to moisture, which helps mould thrive!


How to remove mould from curtains - ventilation

With any space, ventilation is key. Especially in rooms like your laundry, bathroom or kitchen, always having a window open means that any humidity can escape before it creates the perfect environment for mould to grow.

Regular cleaning

Cleaning your curtains regularly is the best way to keep them looking new and mould-free for longer.

To do this, you can keep them dusted and free of excess moisture.


Can curtains be machine washed?

Some curtains can be machine washed, but it's always important to look at the care label to know for sure.

Machine washing is a great way to get a deeper and disinfecting clean, but only do it if the label says so.
