Tips on Mold

1/2/2019 (Permalink)

Mold— it comes in almost every color and it is pesky, to say the least. It is typically caused by bacteria combined with the hot, humid environment that our bathrooms provide, especially post-shower or bath. However, there are a few quick, cheap, and effective tips you can use to help get rid of bathroom mold and prevent it from coming back.

  • After showering, turn on an exhaust fan or open a window.  Humidity provides the perfect breading ground for bacteria so good ventilation is key to removing moisture from the air.  
  • If humidity is still a concern: put charcoal briquettes in a bowl or basket and place it in the bathroom.  The charcoal absorbs some of the moisture.  Just keep it out of reach of children and pets.
  • keep a spray bottle nearby and quickly mist the tiles and caulking after your shower with this natural anti-mold solution that takes no effort to make. Fill a clean spray bottle with water.  Add 10 drops of tea tree oil to the mix.  Place the spray bottle on the 'mist' setting. It takes about four seconds to spray the tiles and then you walk away. Now you are protected from mold. These ingredients are cheap, easy to find and are highly effective.
