How to get rid of mold in Bathroom?

Answered

Although we clean the bathroom regularly and keep the bathroom door open after bath or shower but molds are still creeping around the bathtub and on the grouts of the tiles. I've used mold removal sprays but to no avail.


Any ideas any one?

  • Vinegar will kill the mold spores. Bleach will not. Just pour on white vinegar and let it sit a bit, then clean as normal. Try to improve the ventilation in the room. Crack a window, install an exhaust fan, even a portable fan will work!

    After shower keep a few older towels around. Use to wipe tile down. It doesn't have to be perfection. Apparently the water is not evaporating quickly enough. Do you have an exhaust fan to remove the moisture.

    without ventilation, this could be a continuous problem. a good fan should be installed. even if you have a fan it prob is not drawing enough to dry out the room fast enough. this could be a continuous problem. a good fan should be installed. even if you have a fan it prob is not drawing enough to dry out the room fast enough. there is a product out there called nokout. it is safe for humans and animals. it will help really kill that bacteria and then you can clean up your grout. if mold has gotten behind your grout,
    then it may need to be replaced.

    Spray mold with scented Clorox, then cut paper towel strips. Put strips agains wet Clorox. Spray again until paper sticks. Leave on at least overnight. Longer the better. Paper dries, easily removed, sparkling white. Works great.

    As far as getting that black or discoloration out of your shower, I soak cotton beauty coil in bleach and apply it to the grout/caulk. A few hours later, it is crisp white once more. I also like using a magic eraser for mildew and soap scum on tile and in our cast iron bathtub.

    Use Lysol spray too. Our bathroom did that and the Lysol really helped.

    I use like Tilex for mold/bathrooms. BUT I DO NOT RINSE. Bleach does not kill mold but vinegar does. You can seal the grout on the tiles at Home Depot.
