Mold in your bathroom is a mess you don’t want to see building up over time.
It can really put a damper on your bathroom or shower’s caulk the longer it’s left uncleaned. Which is why it is important to get rid of mold as soon as possible.
Here are a few ways of getting rid of moldy caulk:
Bleach can handle molds in caulk but it should be used with extreme caution. That said, it should NOT be mixed with other cleaning fluids like ammonia as this can be a potential health hazard!
Start off by mixing the bleach with water. You can then apply the solution in a variety of ways to deal. You can pour some in a spray bottle. Be sure to wipe the sprayed area with a sponge for a cleaner finish.
Vinegar can be a natural solution to dealing with moldy bathroom caulk.
This can not only remove molds but also serve as an excellent fungi-killer. Simply spray the area with a vinegar and water solution and then leave it there for about an hour. Then scrub and rinse thoroughly with water.
Additionally, baking soda can be mixed alongside vinegar. It will do wonders in removing moisture and preventing further mold growth.
If you want to get a little more serious with cleaning moldy caulk, hydrogen peroxide can definitely be a step up and a greener way to do so.
When cleaning molds, be sure to use a solution of at least 3% hydrogen peroxide and water. Soak the affected area before letting it sit for 10-15 minutes. Scrub or wipe away afterward. Don’t forget to dry it off with a towel or a cloth when you are done.
