How do you get rid of a peach-colored mold that appears in our shower?

We spray a home-made cleaner of hydrogen peroxide, water and dishwashing soap in the shower after every use. This cleaner works great on everything but this peach colored mold. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it and keep it at bay? We air the shower out really well after each use.

    I've had the same problem. For some reason, only a bleach gets it off. I use a bit in a cup with a toothbrush for where it lives around the door. Maybe once you've gotten rid of it, it won't come back.

  • you will most likely have to use bleach or a commercial product that targets that. I spray my shower with a similar home made product and it reduces but does not eliminate everything.

    go to a health food store and buy four thieves oil. Do a mixture of twenty drops to a quart of water spray and leave for ten minutes and wipe off. Works for all molds and helps it stay away longer. Hope this helps

    Get a good squeegee, using it after every shower and rotate any shower curtains through the laundry

    I 've used dawn & vinegar in a spray bottle. One inch of Dawn then fill the spray bottle up with vinegar. I have no mold or fungus in my showers.

    Are you sure it's mold? I get peachy colored stains from the rust in our well water. If it is from rust, they make a product called Whink rust remover but it is only recommended to use it on white tubs and sinks.

    I haven't had this problem since I started using liquid bath soap but you're right about one thing you have to leave the shower open & let it dry between uses.
