How to prepare a DIY “anti-fungus” to eliminate mold from the bathroom

The bathroom is the area of ​​the house most prone to the formation and accumulation of mold . In particular, black mold in the bathroom seems even more difficult to eliminate, and sticks to walls, tiles, silicone and many other surfaces.

Mold is nothing more than a group of fungi (or microscopic organisms) that tend to develop and proliferate in humid and warm environments, just like the bathroom. Poor ventilation in the bathroom , as well as inadequate cleaning, can encourage the accumulation of mold .

In this article we suggest how to prepare a completely natural “anti-fungus” cleaner , to avoid having to resort to bleach, ammonia or other industrial products that are full of chemicals.


  • 250 ml of white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 250 ml of hot water
  • 10 drops of lemon essential oil

Pour the vinegar and water into a bottle fitted with a spray diffuser. After a few seconds add the lemon juice and shake well. Finally, add the baking soda little by little to contain the effervescent reaction.

Once you have mixed the ingredients well in the bottle, close and spray directly on the surfaces affected by mold. Let it act for 15 minutes.

To increase effectiveness, try sprinkling a little baking soda on surfaces.

After 15 minutes, scrub with a toothbrush and rinse with warm water. The mold should come away completely , but if this doesn’t happen you can repeat the application of the DIY anti-fungus cleaner .
