Removing mold/mildew stains

On the go 

Clothes: Use a stiff brush to whisk away the black dots which are loose spores–but do this outside in case spores spread.

Plastic shower liners: Wipe the shower liner down with diluted Clorox® Regular-Bleach, and rinse thoroughly.

At home

Clothes: Soak whites in a gallon of cool water for 5–10 minutes with 1/2 cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach. Or, if there are only a few mildew spots, pretreat with Clorox® Bleach Pen Gel. For colors, pretreat with Clorox 2® Stain Remover and Color Booster, applying directly to tough stains. Rub in gently 5–10 minutes. Do not allow to dry on fabric. Then wash on the hottest recommended water setting along with your favorite detergent and Clorox® Regular-Bleach for whites or Clorox 2® Stain Remover and Color Booster for colors. Repeat as needed.

Plastic shower liners: First, fill your washing machine with warm water. Add 1 cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach, add shower liner, and wash on the gentlest short cycle. Then hang the liner in your shower, wiping down with a towel to dry thoroughly.
