Bathroom Mold and Mildew Cleaner

If you live in a humid climate than you likely struggle with mold and mildew issues in the bathroom.  Fortunately, we’ve found an all natural recipe that helps remove mold and mildew.  

The key to keeping mold and mildew away is to clean frequently and wipe away excess moisture in the shower when possible.  Using a squeegee to wipe away water that pools in your shower or bath is a good way to reduce moisture in between cleanings.  

Additionally, using a spray mixture of tea tree oil and water on a regular basis will help reduce mold and mildew growth.  A recipe for daily maintenance using tea tree oil can be found below. 

We did have trouble removing mold and mildew that accumulates on caulking in the bathroom.  If you know of an all natural solution for cleaning caulking, we’d love to hear from you!
