Using White Vinegar to Prevent Mold and Mildew in Showers and Bathrooms

Not only can plain white vinegar that you find in the supermarket help to kill mold, but it can also help from mold and mildew forming in the first place. Use a half and half water to vinegar solution and wipe down your showers and shower doors. The vinegar naturally helps to prevent and inhibit the formation of mold and mildew. It might be a little stinky for a half hour or so afterward, but the smell will naturally go away after a little while.

This is especially helpful, since bathrooms and showers are natural areas for mold to grow, since it is such a humid and moist environment...and mold loves to grow in humid areas!

Wow! I never thought of using white vinegar to get rid of mold. I will have to try that. Since you gave us a great tip, I wanted to let you know that sometimes mold repair can be hard for non-professionals to fix. Therefore, seeking professionals like Triton Renovation is a good idea to take care of your more serious mold problems

My only question is can you do mold removal via the vinegar/water method on the ceiling? I feel like we get a lot of mold on there and I'm sick of dragging a chair in there every month to wipe down the ceiling. I can hardly reach!

I read to some articles that mold removal in Los Angeles contractor suggest the use of baking soda solution on bathroom tiles, lavatory & tub after using vinegar solution to clean molds. They say it is effective in bringing back the glossiness. Aside from that they also help to improve the odor. Is this right?

White vinegar and lemon juice are always available at home so there's no reason we can't clean those stubborn molds. I learned it from carpet cleaning in Dublin.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when the shower has mildew or mold around the faucets. I try to always keep my house really clean, but sometimes you don't always get everything done you want to. Luckily we haven't had to call for mold inspections yet, but if I don't get this house under control I'll have to! Thanks for the tips!

Careful with vinegar, it is a little too acidic and long term can cause wear and tear. High end travertine cleaner is the best with some elbow grease. If that doesn't work some simple adjustments like making sure the shower door is left open and the wind currents can make a huge different. We instruct our Our Mableton Maid Service crews to follow this protocol and have had pretty good success with it. Lastly, steam cleaning is the safest, simple temperature and water, no chemicals.
