Cleaning Cabin Curtains

We have in our Cabin nice window coverings.
Unfortunately, with the condensation in the air, they have over the years developed tiny black spots of mold on the back sides and in the out of sight places; the corners and edges.

I removed them from the boat and I think Julie said she tried Oxyclean in Hot Water with no effect. (I would have thought that the Oxyclean would have worked, but it didn't).

They are a white fabric of unknow type and I am afraid to bleach them for fear of destroying them.

Any suggestions?

Our curtains didn't have the mold so you're dealing with something more than I, but mine just went to the professional dry cleaner who cleaned, pressed and returned on hangars. The look like new and didn't cost an exorbitant amount. Yu might check with your cleaners.
