    Shower & Tub Mold Destroyer

    Shower & Tub Mold Destroyer



    The warmth of South Texas makes every shower and tub a lovely culture of black mold... definitely a health hazard, and it looks incredibly disgusting.

    Take 1 part hydrogen peroxide (3%) to 2 parts tap water. Spray on where the mold is starting to develop. Apply after showering and just leave it on there until your next shower!

    We spritz down the whole shower stall with it, by using one of those commercial tub sprayer things that has the battery in it... and just refill the jug with peroxide mix. LOL!

    So... evolution of the ongoing battle of black mold:

    I have since purchased the big quart bottle of Peroxide and just put a squirt top on the bottle. After showering, I've been squirting it straight on the walls and allowing to dry. THAT seems to be keeping it at bay better than anything else, so far! The next step it to just refill the auto-sprayer thing with straight peroxide, methinks.

    (Been doing it for a while, and it ~appears~ that no black mold is developing this time!)

    [it had gotten so bad a year or so ago that I literally pulled the pressure washer's hose through the bathroom window and PRESSURE WASHED the grout and caulk - not surprisingly, the grout and caulk surrendered their positions and I "got" to re-grout and re-caulk the shower stall. ]

    We live in Dear Hubby's former-bachelor pad, and his master bathroom has a shower stall that is behind the bathroom door when the door is opened... with no exhaust fan to move the air or exhaust the humidity. The technicality in Texas is if a bathroom has a window, it doesn't need a fart-catcher fan. So we have zero circulation in that bathroom, and sub-zero behind the door in the shower stall.

    Yup: straight Peroxide seems to be the key!

    Well the shower that would need this is hubby's shower so it isn't something that would get done everyday.
