How to Remove Mildew Stains in Your Bathroom

Remove mildew as soon as you see it: not only is it gross, the longer the mold is allowed to grow, the more damage it can do to surfaces and even your health.

You will need

  • Rubber gloves
  • A spray bottle
  • A bottle of liquid chlorine bleach
  • A plastic-bristled scrub brush
  • Some water
  • A clean
  • dry cloth

Step 1 Put on gloves Put your gloves on.

Step 2 Mix bleach and water Mix 1 part bleach to 15 parts water in the spray bottle.

Step 3 Spray on mildew Spray your bleach solution directly on any mildew stains.

Step 4 Let sit Let the bleach sit for at least five minutes.

Step 5 Rinse with water Scrub the stained areas with a brush and then rinse with water. Use an old toothbrush on small areas like grout.

Step 6 Wipe dry Wipe the treated areas dry with a cloth. This mildew may be gone, but leaving anything damp will just encourage a new batch to sprout.
