As much as most of us hate to admit it, our homes all have mold in them.
Yes, it is the truth.
Your house….has mold in it somewhere, most likely your bathroom.
Our bathroom is a breeding ground for mold because I have kids who LOVE to take steaming hot showers and not turn the fan on, have a landlord who uses cheap paint and we have a fan that seems to have zero effect on the room. Things also tend to get worse in the winter in our bathroom as well since living in Wisconsin doesn’t allow us to have a window open when the shower is going.
So yes, our bathroom is moldy.
Here is the proof.
This is our main bathroom and that is the mold that takes up residence throughout the week which is than sprayed with bleach to kill it every weekend only to have it return throughout the next week.
I recently stopped using the bleach solution we have and replaced it with Tilex® Mold Stain & Mildew Stain Remover. We are now now on our 5th day of having used the Tilex and I am happy to report that the mold has not returned!
I have also started using the Tilex Mold Stain & Mildew Stain Remover in other areas as well. I have found that it works great to clean the accordion like edging/seal on our refrigerator that seems to be the home of some interesting science projects and it removed all the gunky build up around the faucet and drain in the bathroom sinks too!
Since we don’t have the time to clean our bathroom daily, we have started to give the shower walls and tub a quick spray after the last person showers every morning and I have started treating the areas in which we experience common mold and mildew growth every other day in order to combat it and keep it from returning.
So far, we are quite happy with the results!
