Even the most perfect bathroom care sometimes does not prevent mold from forming. They tend to multiply especially between tiles. Get rid of the mold as soon as possible, because the affected areas spread quickly. However, you don’t have to immediately reach for chemical preparations, try natural helpers instead. See how to do it.
- baking soda
- spray bottle
- microfiber cloth or plastic wire
- an older toothbrush with hard bristles
Fill a smaller spray bottle with vinegar.
Spray the affected area and leave it on for an hour or two.
Use a cloth or wire brush to wipe off the mold and clean the space between the tiles with a toothbrush. Then rinse everything with water.
To remove even the remaining traces of mold, mix a paste of three parts baking soda and one part water. Apply it to the affected area, spray it again with vinegar and scrub well with a cloth, wire brush or toothbrush.
Rinse the cleaned area with water. If necessary, repeat cleaning until the mold is gone.
Tip: To prevent the formation of mold, try to ventilate the bathroom as much as possible and keep it dry. After each bath, open the window or turn on the ventilation and wipe the floor dry.
If you are unable to clean the mold naturally, reach for hydrogen peroxide and spray it on the affected areas. However, do not mix it with vinegar. If that doesn’t help either, reach for bleach that you dilute with water – 1 part bleach to three parts water. Ventilate the bathroom well while cleaning.
