Mildew is one of the common types of mold in bathrooms which starts off as small black spots and then grows into larger ones. It goes without saying that these are unsightly when people enter the bathroom and see them in the corners. Following are ways to get rid of them fast.
Old clean sponge
Tub or bucket
Fill up the tub with hot water and put it by the shower. Take the sponge and using the soft side, wet the areas where you can see the mildew.
Take a healthy amount of cream cleaner and apply this on the rough side of the sponge. Start scrubbing. It is best to use a cream cleaner that clings to the mildew stricken area, making the stains easier to remove. The problem with mildew is that there is no quick fix for it, so if it is there in your bathroom, you are going to have to put in a bit of work to get it out.
A metal scourer is more abrasive than any sponge and is a better choice if you are not up for hard scrubbing. As the cream cleaner on this runs out, add more and keep scrubbing until the mildew has started to come off somewhat. Take the old toothbrush if there are areas that are hard to reach, and add cream cleaner like you did before. Continue scrubbing.
After the mildew has started to come off, wipe it down using a cloth. If this area still looks very stained, scrub it again. Keep doing this until you get the result you were looking for.
Stay ahead of the mildew so that it doesn’t pose a huge problem somewhere down the line. Every half year, spray the ceiling with an equal solution of hydrogen peroxide and water. The former is a safe bleach which doesn’t harm the environment or your lungs, and is available at most medical supply stores.
Spray the mix and then leave it for a while without any rinsing or scrubbing, and if the mildew is current, work the above steps. Leave this for a day and then spray again if needed.
These are best ways to get rid of a substantial mildew problem in your bathroom. If you notice it is coming back after a while, get on it right away and spare yourself this kind of effort in the future.
