Bathrooms -- which are typically moist and often humid -- are a breeding ground for mildew. If left untreated, mildew can contribute to allergies, respiratory problems and other illnesses. A mildew-infested shower mat is unsightly and unsanitary. Fortunately, you can remove mildew from shower mats relatively easily with common household products. Some retailers now sell mildew-resistant natural rubber mats. While much more expensive than latex or vinyl, no-mildew mats can last years longer and often are stain-resistant.
