    You have a water leak. Fix the water leak and mold goes away.

    You need to find out where the moisture is coming from, it sounds like you have a problem in the pipes with a leak. If you can't see where it is damp, it may be leaking in the wall, or leaking and going under the vanity. You need to find and fix the problem before you can get rid of the odor. Once we found our leak finally, we ended up having to change out the vanity because the floor of the vanity was rotting. Once you find and fix the problem, clean everything with bleach water and rinse it with vinegar to kill the remaining spores that are left. You don't want to leave it for long as the water can cause a lot of damage that is inevitable once it starts to smell if it is left and you only deal with the odor.

    Are you storing wet/damp toilet cleaning brushes, shampoo bottles, washclothes or plunger under there? If so, leave doors open to help air out and dry items.

  • Clean it! If you do not have a leak, wash the cabinet out with water and vinegar.

    Hi Ken, just use Bicarb of Soda. It absords moisture and oder, leaving a clean fresh smell. Mix a little in to a past, apply using a cloth. Wipe rub area, with a cloth @ soda past. Once mold is gone, rince area then wipe dry. Thats it all done! But you do need to see why you are getting mold, mildew there, becouse that needs fixing ASAP. Good luck Kay Adelaide Australia
