How To Remove Mold And Mildew Stains From Shower Caulking
Because showers and bathtubs are constantly warm and moist, they make the perfect breeding grounds for mold and other bacteria. Not only is it gross to see mold in these places, but it’s also hazardous to your health if you don’t take care of it. Today, we’re going to share an easy and effective tip to get rid of the mold and mildew stains on your shower or bathtub caulking.
Jessica from This Blessed Life revealed that the best way to clean bathroom caulking is by using a combination of bleach and cotton beauty coils (small pieces of cotton used for doing perms). All she did was cut off a piece of the cotton coil, soaked it in bleach, and let it sit overnight on the mold. She explained that she used a Q-tip to press the cotton coil onto the caulking so that the bleach wouldn’t get on her finger.
She also explained that she ran the fan in the bathroom all night long for ventilation, but if you have a bathroom window, it wouldn’t hurt to leave that open, too. In the morning, she removed the cotton coils and rinsed the caulking and edge of the tub. As you can see, this method totally removed the mold, and Jessica revealed that it hasn’t been back since. If you have mold or mildew stains on the caulking on your shower or bathtub, this cheap and simple method seems like it’s definitely worth a shot!
