Mold Mildew Remover

Mildew is a black junk that builds up in your shower and around the faucets. Then there is mold which can build up in your basement or in the walls of your house. When you see mildew and mold it is hard to tell the difference. Therefore you should have a method to cleaning them as soon as they appear. Consider some easy steps in order to create your own mold mildew remover.

It may seem like a difficult task to make your own mold mildew remover, but it is actually a simple process that won’t take you that long at all. The first thing you want to do is pour one cup of bleach into a gallon of water and then mix it well. Then take a bowl and pour a small amount of this mixture into it. 

For small areas you should apply the mixture with a toothbrush and for larger areas you should pour the mixture into a spray bottle for application. It is best to spray down the shower walls, doors and curtains. When it comes to a toothbrush an alternative is a large stiff-bristle brush. After cleaning it is important to rinse the area thoroughly.

After a good scrub you should keep the mixture in a spray bottle in order to do a daily cleaning after a shower. Just spray down the walls, doors and curtains and leave it there until you next shower, you don’t have to worry about rinsing. When you are cleaning your bathroom always remember to open all windows and to turn on a fan in the room. This way you can have plenty of fresh air and ventilation to keep the bleach fumes from building up in the room. You don’t want to inhale the fumes coming off the bleach.
