How to get rid of mold in the bathroom: natural remedies

Mold often appears in the bathroom due to excess moisture

Mold most often appears in rooms with high humidity, particularly in bathrooms. One of the main causes of mold is a lack of ventilation combined with excess moisture.

Mold can be removed without the use of aggressive cleaning agents. The details were reported by the Express.

Laura Harnett, founder of Seep, a brand of eco-friendly cleaning tools, explained how to remove mold without bleach or harsh chemicals.

Here's a list of what you'll need:

  • Baking soda
  • White vinegar
  • Hot water
  • Old toothbrush
  • Eco-friendly cloth
  • A reusable spray bottle

"People think that bleach removes mold, but it's a strong chemical that doesn't actually kill the mold spores, so they come back quickly," Laura said.

To clean surfaces from mold, four simple steps are enough.

Step 1: In a container, mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, and the same amount of hot water.

Step 2: Using an old toothbrush, rub the mixture into the moldy areas in a circular motion. Larger surfaces will require more paste, so the key is to maintain a 1:1:1 ratio.

Step 3: After cleaning, wash the surface with a sponge soaked in running water and dry it with an eco-friendly cloth. Such fabrics absorb much more than paper towels.

Step 4: White vinegar is useful as a preventive measure against mold. Simply spray it in places where there is a risk of mold growth. If the smell of vinegar is too pungent for you, use tea tree oil. 10-20 drops are enough for a glass of water.
