How To Get Rid of Mold & Mildew In a Shower
Do you have mold in your shower? You've scrubbed that gross black stuff but it just WON'T go away? I can relate, so I'm sharing my DIY fix for mold and mildew in a shower!
*I'm Jenn & I blog over at The Bachelorette Pad Flip. I buy old, ugly, and neglected houses and FLIP them all by myself! It's a crazy, DIY house-flipping life, so come follow along!
My most recent flip is my grandparents' midcentury ranch. The adorable vintage bathroom was in need in a big overhaul and restoration...including in the shower! The shower was being invaded by gross mold!
By doing a deeeeeep clean [I share my favorite mildew cleaner on my blog!] with bleach and mildew remover, I was able to make a dent in the gross black. But, that was only the beginning. By using a glass scraper, I removed years of gross soap scum, brittle caulking, and debris.
And by years of soap scum, I mean decades of soap scum. The glass scraper is a great tool to remove grime from tile!
After I scraped the grime, removed all the caulking and cleaned, it was time to get started making the shower shine again! Using shower and tub caulk, I was able to add shiny white "trim" to the tub...and even the tiles!
The final product, after a couple nights of cleaning, is a shower with NO BLACK MOLD! Yay!
