Nothing ruins the prospect of a nice soothing shower more than unsightly mold or mildew in the bathroom.
Not only are these slimy fungi gross to look at, they also pose health risks. Bathroom mold can cause or aggravate respiratory illnesses or allergies and even cause fatigue or depression.
For many people, though, having a truly clean bathroom has traditionally meant resorting to using equally toxic chemicals such as bleach and chemical cleansers.
If having a home that is as clean of chemicals as it is of dirt is important to you, there’s good news. You can easily scrub mold and mildew from your bathroom, and your life, without resorting to bleach or other harsh cleaning products.
Here’s a look at some natural cleaners that will get rid of these stubborn unwanted guests:
One of the most handy weapons in your arsenal against household dirt, white vinegar is a safe, natural, and also incredibly effective against mold and mildew.
Fill a spray bottle with vinegar and thoroughly soak affected areas, then allow the vinegar to sit and do its work. After a few hours, scrub the treated area with a brush or coarse sponge.
After you’ve gotten rid of the mold or mildew, keep your spray bottle filled and ready to go. Spray down your shower after every use to slow its return.
