How to Get Rid of Bathroom Mold for Good
With any green cleaning product for bathroom mold, you should use gloves and work in a well-ventilated area. Wearing a mask is highly recommended, as cleaning mold can cause the release of mold spores into the air.
There are plenty of products that claim to kill mold, but good old soap and water (and elbow grease) are usually enough to do the trick. You can also make a bathroom mold cleaning solution with items from around the house.
Bleach is good option for removing mold stains in the bathroom, but it should only be used in a well-ventilated area. Distilled white vinegar is also a nontoxic solution for cleaning mold in the bathroom. After cleaning the mold, it’s best to follow it up with an EPA-Registered Disinfectant cleaner.
