How To Get Mildew Stains Out Of Linen?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I’m using a linen shower curtain from Gaiam right now. It gets thoroughly wet, but doesn’t leak and dries pretty quickly. Despite the “anti-mold” claims, mine did get mildew when I went too long (2 months) without washing it. Does anyone have any good recommendations for getting mildew stains out of linen? (It’s natural colored, unbleached and undyed, so bleach is out even if I did want to use it.)

Editor: We’ve never been to good with stain-removal. We usually throw a bit of everything onto any kind of stain. Salt, cold water, toothpaste, dish soap, detergent … you name, it we’ve tried it.

So we’ll put this out to everyone. Tips for Rebecca?
