Trivia: Shower curtains are often made of what material that prevents mildew?
The correct answer is Polyester
So why is this answer correct? : Mildew grows in abundance in homes and develops rapidly under humid conditions. It is noticeable because of its musty smell and black or white appearance on surfaces. Although it can grow on many naturally-sourced products such as paper, wool, silk, and linen, mildew cannot grow easily on most synthetic fabrics, which is why many shower curtains are made from synthetic materials.
