You know, it’s really not cool to have mold growing on your bathroom tiles. It’s like, so mainstream to just use some harsh chemical cleaner and call it a day. But, us hipsters know that there are more natural, sustainable ways to get rid of that unsightly growth.
First things first, make sure you properly ventilate the area. Mold thrives in damp, poorly ventilated spaces. So, open a window and/or turn on the exhaust fan while you work.
Next, mix equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. The vinegar is a natural disinfectant and will help to kill the mold. Spray the mixture onto the affected tiles and let it sit for at least an hour. This will give the vinegar time to work its magic.
After an hour or so, grab a scrub brush (preferably a natural bristle brush) and give those tiles a good scrub. The combination of the vinegar and scrubbing should remove the majority of the mold.
Rinse the tiles with water to remove any remaining mold and vinegar residue. If you still see some stubborn spots, you can try using a mixture of baking soda and water. The baking soda is a natural abrasive and can help to scrub away any remaining mold.
Once you’re satisfied with the cleanliness of your tiles, make sure to keep the area well ventilated to prevent future mold growth. And voila! Your bathroom tiles are mold-free and on trend with your hipster aesthetic.
However, you know that prevention is key when it comes to maintaining a mold-free bathroom. So, it’s important to have the right tools and materials on hand to keep your tiles looking fresh and clean.
First and foremost, invest in a high-quality exhaust fan. This will help to properly ventilate the space and prevent excess moisture from accumulating on your tiles.
Next, make sure you have a supply of white vinegar on hand. As mentioned before, vinegar is a natural disinfectant and can help to kill mold spores. It’s also great for removing hard water stains and mineral deposits from tiles.
Baking soda is another must-have for your bathroom cleaning arsenal. Not only is it a natural abrasive, but it’s also a natural deodorizer. So, if you have any funky smells lurking in your bathroom, baking soda can help to eliminate them.
Finally, it’s always a good idea to have a supply of microfiber cloths or scrub brushes. These will come in handy for giving your tiles a good scrub when it’s time to clean. Just make sure to use a natural bristle brush to avoid scratching your tiles.
By keeping these materials on hand, you’ll be prepared to tackle any mold that may try to make a home on your bathroom tiles. And, as a bonus, you’ll be doing your part to reduce your environmental footprint by using natural, sustainable cleaning methods.
