We all know that mold is disgusting, bad for health and, nevertheless, hard to remove sometimes, especially when it gathers on the shower caulking. Yet, it is present in every home, growing harmoniously in high humidity areas such as bathrooms and basements (unless you don’t remove it and prevent its appearance).
Recently, I moved into a studio and my bathroom is a few squared feet, meaning that I enjoy hot showers instead of hot bubble baths. Since I don’t have ventilation in my bathroom, it’s kind of hard to keep the area dry, and mold attacks quickly.
I can say that I’m immune to this black fungus, because I found the perfect weapon to kill it and to prevent its appearance.
Anyhow, I found it hard to remove from the shower caulking, because this horrible black fungus didn’t want to disappear only with a few vinegar sprays. Since I’m allergic to bleach vapors, I don’t have other option than using natural mold removers, and I challenged myself to kill that black mold from the shower sealant.
So, I created the perfect mold remover that banishes even the most stubborn mold pore gathered on the shower caulking.
– baking soda
– hydrogen peroxide
– plastic bowl
– 2 sprayers
How to remove mold from shower caulking

- Let the baking soda paste to act for 30 minutes.
- Pour white vinegar in a spray bottle, and sprinkle it over the baking soda layer. It will form a bubbling reaction; just let it act for another 15 minutes.
- Rinse with cold water, and repeat the above steps.
- At the end, pour hydrogen peroxide in the second spray bottle, and after you’ve rinsed well the vinegar and baking soda paste, start spraying hydrogen peroxide abundantly over the shower caulking.
