How Do You Clean Mildew On Bathroom Caulking?
Because bathroom caulk is porous and constantly exposed to moisture, it is often a hotbed of mold and mildew growth. This mold and mildew is unsightly, smells unpleasant and is possibly dangerous to your health. Mold buildup also will quickly degrade your bathroom caulking, leading to more mildew buildup and possible water damage. Regular mold and mildew cleanup is essential to a well-kept bathroom. Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar. Spray the caulk with vinegar and allow it to sit for 30 to 60 minutes. Sprinkle the caulk with baking soda. Scrub the caulk with an old toothbrush or other small brush to remove mildew and mold. Rinse thoroughly and let the mildew wash down the tub or shower’s drain. Use a commercial mildew cleaner with bleach to eliminate persistent stains.
