A pristine bathroom sets the mood for a long and relaxing bath time while a bathroom with moulds growing grosses everybody out. If your bathroom suffers from these mould attacks, you need a plan of action to get rid of them. These moulds are not only a problem to the aesthetic value of your home, but they also cause major health issues especially among children.
Moisture and darkness are a major factor in their growth, keeping your windows open to let in the sunlight and dry moist surfaces is a good start.
To remove the already existing moulds, here’s our step by step guide on the same.
Firstly, put on a face mask and gloves. The mould itself and the solutions you’ll be using to clean them off are toxic to your lungs, skin and eyes. Be careful with yourself and let the window open to allow sunlight and ventilation into the room.
You can buy a bathroom cleaning solution from the online store or make one by simply mixing vinegar and water in equal parts, creating your own DIY spray bottle. Spray the solution on the mildew and let it be for a while.
Next up is a bleach solution, again equal parts water and bleach. Spray the solution and get out for some fresh air.
Make sure to check for any residual fumes before you enter the room again. After you’ve sure that there’s no fumes or smell, work on the mildew using a long brush you can get from our home improvement site. You can also use an old toothbrush if it’s a small area.
Wipe down the surface using a hot wet cloth to clean it all up, repeat the process if necessary.
Cleaning your shower with ease
To remove the deadly germs hanging out on your bathroom shower, you must take a few precious hours out of your schedule. But once it’s done, you’ll feel more at ease with a shower that looks clean and is germ free.
Start by filling a plastic bag with enough amount of white vinegar so that it can fully cover the showerhead nozzle. Tie the bag on it for overnight soaking. Rinse it in the morning by running the water.
Throw in the shower curtains and linens in the wash with some old towels. The towels act as scrubbers and help getting rid of scum, mildew and soap.
You can clean shower doors using a DIY paste made of a few drops of distilled vinegar and a cup of baking soda. Apply the paste on the door, it’ll stick due to its thickness. Rub it using a microfiber cloth or rag after letting it sit for an hour. Rinse and dry with another cloth.
Weekly scrub is the way to go when it comes to keeping your tub clean.
To make yourself secured from the various germs and pathogens that exist in the moisture, always wipe down any condensation left in the bathroom after you shower and keep your windows open for at least an hour a day.
