How to clean mold on bathroom sealant: an easy method

Yulia PoteriankoLife
Sealant often suffers from mold growth

No matter how tight your sealant is, it is likely that you will not be able to protect it from mold. Microscopic fungal spores like to settle in this material and manifest themselves as ugly black spots, which are also dangerous to health. That's why it's important to know how to clean bathroom sealant from mold.

Of course, you can buy a chlorine-based product, but it is criticized for being quite aggressive and toxic, and it often just discolors the stain rather than removes it. Therefore, OBOZREVATEL has collected several home recipes that should eliminate fungal damage effectively and without store-bought chemicals.

Hydrogen peroxide

Peroxide can cope with the problem even in pharmacy concentration. Simply pour the liquid on the areas where mold has appeared on the sealant and leave it to act for 15 minutes. After that, rinse the area with water and wipe it thoroughly with a paper towel to remove any remaining mold, if any.

Vinegar

Acetic acid is also quite effective against mold in the bathroom. However, you will need to leave the vinegar on for a longer period of time. You may also need 2-3 treatments. Pour ordinary food vinegar on the stain in the same way. Do not spare the product because it should work for an hour. Preferably, it should not dry out during this time. After that, the contaminated area should also be rinsed with water and wiped dry.
