“In my bathroom tub, there is a mould that will not go anywhere, no matter how much I wash it! How can I get rid of that?”

We still hear this question, and it’s nothing to be afraid of. Mould growth is widespread in toilets, sinks, and other high humidity areas. The mould thrives in certain conditions, and most definitely, the shower is one of them. Luckily, you can do some things with simple household cleaning products to fight mould.

Why Should You Remove Bathroom Mould?

Do not scratch mould with your fingertips or scrub it dry with a brush, no matter what you do, because this will allow live spores to float up in the air where they will find themselves somewhere else where they can grow, flourish and give you more headaches.

Mould is generally harmless for a healthy person, but certain moulds can make you ill and cause health problems, particularly in people with weakened immune systems or mould allergies. Of the 1.5 million identified mould types, 80 are toxic, but the chance to make you sick increases significantly if you are susceptible to allergies.

Allergic mould responses may include flu-like symptoms, fever, mood changes, skin rashes, sinusitis, breathing problems, dizziness, and lung infections. The mould in your bathroom may not have a detrimental effect on your health, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should.

How Do You Remove Mould?

Scrub off the mould! Treat the grout with a paste made out of the water and baking soda between the tiles. That’s correct; Elbow grease is the most potent mould removal method we have. Apply the paste, wait for a little, and wipe away the mould.

  • Let it linger for as long as you need–very filthy grout, for example, will take an hour or two.
  • Sprinkle the tiles with water and use a scrub brush to polish the grout with a vigorous push.
  • Rinse thoroughly and clean with a brush.
  • Once the grout is scrubbed, the mould reduction can be expanded so that next time, you do not need to use as much elbow grate!

If your bathroom is not maintained between cleanings properly, it doesn’t take much time for the mould to return. In reality, find mould protection as oral care— we must keep our teeth free from plaque.

How To Keep The Mould Away

Once you’re finished showering, switching on a fan or open a window before moisture is drained from your shower can help. High-quality ventilation is needed to remove humidity and contaminants from the air.

The lack of moisture provides a weak breeding ground for bacteria and is the best way to keep your mould-free area.

To doubly secure your bathroom, keep a spray bottle in the vicinity, and quickly clean tiles with this natural anti-mould solution during your shower.

The formula includes additives that keep the bath from becoming a breeding ground when sprayed. Water and spray bottles are required for white vinegar or tea tree oil.


Vinegar is not always good enough to get rid of the mould, but in the first place, it’s nice to keep mould from developing. Maintain that vinegar bottle in your bathroom always and use it to spray mould-prone surfaces when wet. It makes it hard for the mould to expand, which means that you don’t have to waste time scraping it.
