Any suggestions on getting rid of black mold around shower doors/ trays?
Mildew or black mold is caused by dampness. A good step in prevention is to keep the window open or a fan running when showering or bathing. You could also wipe the walls down with a towel or use a squeegee to keep the walls dry.
Here are some recipes for cleaning mildew:
Combine in a spray bottle. Spray on dirty areas of bathtubs, shower curtains, or tile; let sit 5 minutes then scrub with a cloth.
Good for big cleaning projects. Effective for removing
mildew in the bathroom.
Apply to mildew. Use rubber gloves and use in a well ventilated area.
As bleach is toxic, use care whenever using it. This recipe should only be used when nothing else has worked.
Any other ideas how to remove mildew without bleach?
Spray area around tub with Lysol spray about once a month and you will eliminate any mold. Works for me! (03/29/2004)
We used one gallon of warm water with two caps full of bleach mix. Sprayed the area down scrubbed with brush then cleaned up with a sponge.
Seems to have done the trick. (04/17/2005)
