How to remove mold from the bathtub

Removing mold from your bathtub and tiles is essential to protecting the health and hygiene of your home. To permanently eliminate mold, you only need two basic and very effective ingredients: ammonia and bleach.

Below we detail the entire process to remove mold and dirt from your bathtub and tiles.

Getting rid of mold in the bathroom is not just a question of aesthetics, but above all of health. To avoid its occurrence, it is important to carry out cleaning with a certain frequency, at least once a week . If the mold reappears quickly, there may be a ventilation problem in your bathroom.

In order to avoid the occurrence of moisture and thus the formation of mold, it is important to ventilate the bathroom daily and after every shower . The reason is very simple: the air condenses when you shower. If the condensed air is not dried, it settles on walls, ceilings and bathroom furniture and paves the way for mold, fungi and other bacteria.

Tips for preventing mold and moisture in the bathroom
To remove mold and moisture stains from your bathtub , tiles, and ceiling, you will need bleach or ammonia. Both products are very cheap and can be bought in any supermarket.

Never mix bleach and ammonia . The resulting fumes are very toxic and harmful to health.
Use latex or rubber gloves to clean the bathroom.
Ventilate the bathroom daily and after every shower.
Use these products diluted in cold water and avoid contact with the nose, eyes and mouth.
The humidity created by condensation promotes the development of mold between the bathroom or shower tiles. To prevent its occurrence, it is recommended to wipe once a week with a cloth moistened with bleach.

Remove mold with bleach
Bleach is the most effective disinfectant for eliminating mold in the bathroom. Follow these simple steps:

Add half a liter of cold water and some bleach to a spray diffuser bottle and shake well.
Spray the solution onto tile grout lines, bathtub seals, and other mold-infested areas.
Leave the product on for 10-15 minutes.
Finally, scrub with a sponge or toothbrush and rinse with plenty of cold water.
Do this type of cleaning with the windows and doors open: bleach gives off a very strong smell. Always use gloves and a mask.

Eliminate mold with ammonia
The process is very similar to the previous one. Pour some liquid ammonia and cold water into a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto the mold and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then rub well with a sponge or cloth and rinse with plenty of cold water.

In this case, too, it is important to open windows and doors and wear gloves and a mask.

To prevent mold from forming again, remember to ventilate the bathroom daily and clean it regularly. If possible, dry the bathtub after each use.

After removing mold from the bathroom, you can use a natural solution to keep it clean by mixing hot water, white vinegar, and the juice of a lemon.
