How To Easily Remove Mold And Mildew From Bathroom Caulking

Caulking is a necessary part of bathrooms. It lines everyone’s tub and/or shower to ensure water doesn’t get into cracks and crevices and create mold. However, the caulking itself can accumulate mold and mildew over time, and it can be difficult to clean properly. Until now, that is!

Jessica of This Blessed Life revealed that you only need two things to remove the mold from your bathtub caulking: cotton coil and bleach. In case you’re wondering, cotton coil is essentially just deconstructed cotton balls that come in one, long piece. All you have to do is soak the cotton coil in some bleach, then place the cotton on the caulking.

Jessica recommends using a Q-tip to press the cotton coil onto the caulking so that your skin doesn’t come into contact with the bleach. And on that note, it’s probably a good idea to wear rubber gloves or something similar when handling the cotton coil as well. When letting the cotton coil sit (at least a few hours), you should also run the fan and open any windows if possible to ventilate.

When the time’s up, remove the cotton coil and use a damp cloth to wipe down the surfaces. Jessica revealed that since trying this cleaning method, the mold hasn’t returned. So if you, too, are battling bathroom mold, this simple yet effective method is certainly worth trying!
