The friendly shower mold
Mold thrives in damp, dark locations, making your shower the perfect place for it to take up residence. There's no need to panic if you do happen to discover a patch of shower mold; This is an extremely common occurrence that the majority of homeowners do have to tackle at some point. Luckily, there's an easy solution to help expunge your home's mold problem.
Create a non-toxic mold cleaning solution using equal parts white vinegar and water. Pour this solution into a spray bottle.
Spray the moldy area with the cleaning solution, making sure to fully saturate the area. Let the cleaning solution sit for approximately 30 minutes.
Use a clean, dry rag or towel to wipe the cleaning solution off of the shower tiles. Most of the mold should come off with the cleaning solution. If your hand towel becomes oversaturated, grab a fresh one.
Use a scrub brush or kitchen sponge to attack any remaining patches of black mold. If the mold is in the shower grout or caulking, you can use a disposable toothbrush to get into the crevices.
Rinse the affected area with warm water and use a separate towel to completely dry the shower.
Keeping your bathroom as clean and dry as possible is the key to preventing another mold problem. You can do this by properly ventilating the room every time you shower, hanging up all wet towels and bathmats to dry when you're done using them and thoroughly drying any stray puddles that have been left on the bathroom floor.
