Mold in the bathroom is not just an aesthetic problem. Fungal spores multiply extremely quickly and can cause a variety of health problems, from allergic reactions to respiratory diseases.

Mold thrives in damp rooms with poor air circulation. Experts tell us how to get rid of mold in the bathroom quickly and permanently.

Cleaning your home can be tiring, not to mention expensive if you use a lot of different products. Affordable and effective ingredients can help.

Mold often appears on shower walls, near sinks, on window sills, and in other areas of the house where moisture levels are high.

Cleaning expert Joyce French shares a clever way to get rid of fungal spores in no time.

  1. Plain vodka will do the trick. Mix vodka with water in a 1:1 ratio in a spray bottle and spray the solution directly onto the affected area.
  2. Leave the liquid on for 1-15 minutes and then wipe it off with a clean cloth.

This product not only cleans the mold, but also kills the fungal spores, which will prevent the mold from reappearing.

Be sure to use only plain, flavorless vodka, as flavored liquids can attract beetles and ants due to their sugar content.

White vinegar will also come in handy. It will effectively remove black mold from bathroom sealant and other areas.

  1. Mix water and vinegar in a 3:1 ratio and add a little dishwashing detergent.
  2. Wipe the affected areas thoroughly with a damp sponge and dry with kitchen paper or a napkin.

Vodka and vinegar leave a rather specific pungent odor. If you want to try a gentler option, try tea tree oil. This is an effective and non-toxic method that will remove even deep mold.

  1. Mix two cups of lukewarm water and 2 tablespoons of tea tree oil in a spray bottle and spray on the moldy areas.
  2. There is no need to rinse this product off. Just wait for the active ingredients to work and wipe the surface with a damp sponge.
