    Does anyone know of any old fashioned remedies to get mildew from coloured curtains?
    I can't use bleach because of the pattern (cream with red flowers on one set and the other set is lilac) and I have tried oxy action and washed them in the washer on a 40 degree wash. The black mould is still there.

    Try Shout Gel, spray it on let it sit a day then wash, see if that helps! I have set in grease and that stuff has gotten it out! It is in a blue spray bottle.

    will it be called something else in england?
    googling sites i read to put lemon juice on it then put in washer with washing soda instead of detergent and vinegar instead of conditioner. i tried it but it hasn't worked

    Borax gets some mold out. It's an old fashioned laundry additive. It also is useful to repel bugs
