Q: Any tips about how to apply the product?
A: There are a few ways, depending on the configuration of your curtains. Follow label instructions on bottle before applying.

  1. Leave the curtain hanging, then pull it out the door or window. This will give you easy access to the mould on the rear lining. Rest the curtain over plastic garden chairs if it’s a slider door… or if it’s a window then simply hang them out the window frame.
  2. The best way is to take them down and hang them over the clothesline. Do this on a sunny day in the morning, and they should be dry (or near enough), to rehang by the afternoon.
  3. If the curtains are small, you can hold the corner of the curtain out, and spray on with the other hand. All surrounding surfaces need to be covered incase the liquid drips onto a non-colourfast surface.
  4. If you are treating the lining only (98% of customers), and don’t want the liquid to go through to the coloured side… try unclipping the small clips down the side, and fold the front of the curtain back up on itself so only the lining is left dangling (Use pegs to hold the curtain up and out of your way). This gives easy access to treat the lining.
  5. If your curtain is attached/stitched to the lining, then it’s normally open across the bottom for ventilation purposes. If this is the case, you can slip some cardboard up between the curtain and lining to prevent the liquid transferring across.

Q: Do I dilute the product?
A: No. Our product arrives at your door ready to spray on. We’ve made it fast & simple to get rid of your mould!

Q: Do I use alot of product on the mouldy area?
A: You must apply the product liberally… really wet the mould with our product. Wait 15mins and the mould should be gone in most cases. If any mould remains, respray only the areas where mould remains. Once the mould is gone, you can put some water in the spray bottle to wash out any residual chemical (the curtain will be wet anyway with the product). If you apply the product over a clothesline, you can hose it down.

Q: What area does the product cover?
A: Generally, a 4L container is sufficient to clean the curtains in an average sized house. However, it’s hard to say exactly what area can be covered because the coverage depends on how much mould you’ve got, how old the mould is, how far up the lining the mould goes, how many curtains you have, how porous your curtains are etc. Here is a rough guide:

1L Container – 1-2 curtains with moderate mould.

2L Container – 1-4 curtains with moderate mould.

4L Container – 1-8 curtains with moderate mould.

Q: Can your curtain mould remover be used on carpet, mattresses, cushions, duvets or couches?

Applications:

Thermal or Colourfast Curtains – Please do a colour test on a small, hidden area of your curtains before applying it liberally. Once satisfied with the sample test, you can go ahead and spray the mould on the curtains, making sure you’ve covered any carpet or upholstery to protect them from any stray spray. If your curtains have unattached white lining behind the coloured curtain, put a piece of cardboard between the coloured layer of the curtains and the white lining and spray the white lining only. Pay attention not to let the wet lining come into contact with the coloured fabric. It’s best that you wear a mask so you don’t breathe in the product.

Ceilings & Walls: The most effective method is to spray the product on, working steadily, covering all areas well. After all traces of mould have disappeared clean the mop with fresh water and with lightly damp sponge, wipe off any excess moisture.

Wallpaper: We recommend spraying wallpaper for best results. Work from the bottom up to prevent streaking. Streaking occurs when spraying begins at the top and excess product runs down the walls leaving clean lines.
To eliminate streaking, spray the entire area from the bottom and work up. Once the area has been cleaned and all traces of mould have disappeared, wipe area well with a clean dry cloth to remove excess water.
Wallpaper should be tested for colour fastness first.

Bathrooms: Because shower curtains are waterproof, both sides must be sprayed to eliminate mould. Work with a dry curtain, spray well to cover the mould. We recommend spraying the curtain late at night and the next morning the curtain will be clean.
