I have a few problems that I think some of you may be able to help me with. 1. I have a shower curtain for the first time since I was a little girl. We always had a door. What is the best way to clean them? I have noticed some black mildew (?) spots on it. I am kinda sensitive to harsh chemicals but I can get my hubby to use them if need be. 2. I am sick and tired of making burnt french fries. My hubby and son love the frozen crinkle fries. Every time I make them the ones on the outside of the pan come out black or dark brown. Any tips? 3. Can you recommend a window treatment for a patio door that is not vertical blinds? Thanks in advance!
