How do you clean a moldy shower curtain?
Mix together equal parts water and baking soda in a bowl to create a paste.
Use a coconut scrubber sponge or brush and a bit of the paste to scrub the offending areas.
Rinse the paste away, and see if the process needs repeating in any other areas.

How do you clean a shower curtain without taking it down?
When you want to get your shower curtain clean, but you can't take it down, fill a reusable glass spray bottle with one part white vinegar or cleaning vinegar and four parts water.
Spray the mixture on the side of the shower curtain facing inside the tub, and allow it to sit for a few minutes.
Rinse the shower curtain with clean water, and allow it to air dry.
Should you clean a shower curtain with bleach?
While you can clean a shower curtain liner with bleach, using chlorine bleach can lead to long-term negative impacts on the environment and can permanently stain any liners that aren’t white or transparent.
Instead, try using the baking soda paste trick mentioned above, or tackle tough mildew by adding vinegar to the water when soaking the liner.
If you have a cloth shower curtain, try laundering with a color-safe, non-chlorine bleach that is free of harsh chemicals and works on white curtains or those with colors.
