It looks bad, it's unhygienic, and its detrimental to your heath... that's right! Bathroom mould!
At one point or another, even the most careful cleaner will need to know how to clean bathroom mould. So whether or not you have some minor mould and you want to "hit the nail on the head" before it gets any worse, or if you have an extensive mould problem that just can't be put off anymore, here's some tips.
How to Clean Bathroom Mould
To clean bathroom mould, work with a good quality product. Apply the product by spraying or wiping it on the areas you need to clean. You usually should use a sponge or a soft cloth since brushes are abrasive and might damage the surface you a cleaning. You can scrub with a used toothbrush, however, if you are cleaning drains, grout or hard to reach crevices for mould.
If you are cleaning a mouldy shower, you may want to consider applying a mixture of bleach and water to clean mould. This will have the advantage of stopping it re-growing immediately. Be careful to not mix bleach with any other product, however, since they can react and create harmful fumes.
If you keep a lot of bottles and containers (like shampoo and conditioner) in your bathroom, give them a wipe with some of the cleaning product you are using. This will kill any mould that has begun to grow on these and stop it spreading back into your bathroom.
Preventing Further Mould Regrowth
Once you have cleaned your bathroom mould, you're going to want to stop it regrowing, so you don't have to go through the painful process of cleaning it again. Here's some tips.
Mould forms because of constant moisture. When you have a lot of toiletries lying around, like bottles of shampoo, conditioner, face wash, and so on, your bathroom will remain wet for longer since water gets trapped between these, and the surface they are sitting on. An easy and great way to stop mould regrowth is to minimize how many bottles and products you have lying around.
Dispose of, or put away the bathroom products that you only use occasionally. Try and store tools or bottles where they won't get wet like in a cupboard. You might even want to consider hanging a drainage rack for your shampoo and soap in the shower. This will help your shower dry far quicker than if you just leave products sitting on the shower ledge or floor.
