Method 1: Baking soda and bleach
First, use warm water with soap and baking soda to remove the most part of the mold. Baking soda is a very good cleaning agent. Try this simple recipe to create your own cleaning product:
– 1 teaspoon of liquid soap
– 1 cup of baking soda
– a few drops of essential oil (citrus, rosemary, lemon, mint, eucalyptus, etc.)
– water to form a paste
Prepare a solution with one part bleach and 2 parts water. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Spray the affected surface with the solution obtained and wait for it to dry.
Sprays the second time and rub the surface with a brush. Rinse and repeat the process until the mold disappears.
Method 2: Vinegar
Pour a little white undiluted vinegar into a spray bottle. Vinegar has a mild acidity, transforming the surface that penetrates into an unfavorable environment for mold. Don’t dilute the vinegar when pouring it into the spray bottle.
Spray the vinegar over the moldy surfaces and wait for an hour. During this time, if possible, let the air come out.
After an hour, wipe the area with warm water and dry the surface using a towel. Clean very well the areas prone to mold. After removing the vinegar, the smell shouldn’t be felt anymore.
Use vinegar to prevent mold appearance. Vinegar is reported to kill 82% of mold species, making it an excellent way to prevent mold from taking over your bath.
Simply spray a little vinegar and let it work. If you do this regularly, the mold will be hard to appear.
Method 3: Borax
Mix a cup of borax with 3.7 liters of water. Borax is a natural cleaning agent and can also be used as a natural insecticide. It has the advantages of an affordable price, is available everywhere and is effective.
Attack the mold with a brush using the borax solution. Wipe the borax solution and wait for it to dry. If you worry about recontamination, spray some vinegar in the area to prevent another outbreak.[/expand]
