How to Protect Your Natural Fiber Shower Curtain

A natural fiber shower curtain is a smart alternative to toxic PVC curtains. (See this previous post for a guide to natural options). One problem though, is that the natural fibers tend to be susceptible to mold. If are lucky enough to have a hemp curtain, you'll find that hemp is more mold-resistant. However, if you need some extra protection against mold you can try applying some Water Shield from AFM Safecoat. This water sealer does not off-gas and protects the fabric against water. Apparently a "beeswax emulsion" works as well. :: AlerG
