No one likes a mouldy bathroom, but in a room which tends to have a warm and damp environment, it’s inevitable. It becomes ingrained into your lovely bathroom tiles, it gets stuck to your shower curtain and it lives in the crevices around your taps. So what can you do about it? Are you doomed to just let your bathroom’s condition deteriorate? Well, of course not! Follow our handy advice and it’ll be sparkling in no time.
Make sure your bathroom is ventilated:
Every time you use the shower, open up the window. If your bathroom doesn’t have a window then it’s vital that you have some sort of air vent so that the air can circulate. It’s also a good idea to keep the bathroom door open when you’re not in it.
Use a bleach spray:
We’re talking about something which is designed to tackle black mould. As soon as any mould appears, tackle it with the spray straight away. Move any objects away from the area and follow the product’s instructions. It’s normally advisable to let it sit for a few minutes so it can really get stuck into the area before you start scrubbing.
Consider using vinegar:
White stilled vinegar is a brilliant weapon against black mould. Simply spray it onto the affected area and leave for a few hours.
Think about trying hot water combined with baking soda:
Mix the baking soda with a fragrant smelling washing up liquid combined with hot water. Spread the mixture into the black mould areas and you should see results in no time.
Use a toothbrush:
If you’re struggling with a cloth, then use an old toothbrush. It’ll be able to get into all the nooks and crannies.
And of course, as long as you stay on top of your bathroom cleaning, then any mould that appears should disappear as soon as it appears. Remember that the longer you leave it, the worse it will set in. Let the battle against the mould commence!
