There is no denying that mold is disgusting, bad for health, and, yet, difficult to remove sometimes, especially when it gathers on shower caulking. However, it grows harmoniously in high humidity areas such as bathrooms and basements (unless you don’t remove it and prevent its appearance).
I just moved into a studio with a small bathroom, so I enjoy hot showers instead of hot bubble baths. Due to the lack of ventilation in my bathroom, mold easily attacks the area.
It’s safe for me to say that I’m immune to this black fungus since I’ve found the perfect weapon to kill it and prevent its appearance.
I couldn’t completely remove it from the shower caulking, since this horrible black fungus wouldn’t go away with vinegar alone. Because I’m allergic to bleach vapors, I had no choice but to use natural mold removers, and I challenged myself to kill the black mold on the shower sealant.
In my quest to remove mold from shower caulking, I came across the perfect mold remover. Check it out:
◾ baking soda
◾ hydrogen peroxide
🧽 Tools needed:
◾ plastic bowl
◾ 2 spray bottles
How to remove mold from shower caulking
Mix baking soda with water until you get a smooth paste, thick enough to cover the whole problem area.
Allow 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 trigger a bubbling reaction; just let it act for another 15 minutes.
Rinse with cold water, and repeat the above steps.
Finally, pour hydrogen peroxide in the second spray bottle. Rinse the vinegar and baking soda paste and start spraying hydrogen peroxide abundantly over the shower caulking.
The results will amaze you! Enjoy a white bathroom!
🟢 Prevention method: Once in a while, dip cotton balls in white vinegar and place them over the shower sealant, letting it act for 30 minutes. Rinse well with cold water and dry the area.
