Use a coarse bristled brush and brush the mold off the curtains. It is best to do this outside to avoid contaminating an area of your house with airborne mold spores.
Create a mixture of equal parts water and non-chlorine bleach in an empty, clean spray bottle. If the curtains' care instructions specifically instruct not to use any form of bleach, you can substitute white vinegar instead. Spray the mixture directly on the mold-affected areas, saturating the material. Allow the mixture to set for 30 minutes.
Rinse the curtains thoroughly, and launder as normal. Once the curtains are clean, allow them to air dry. If you notice a mold stain remains, repeat steps 1 and 2.
