How To Get Rid Of Mold In The Shower Naturally

Mold is a common problem.

The presence of pores, humidity, and lack of ventilation gives rise to the accumulation of black molds. Further, if you use the shower screen, the situation gets even worse.

Many people use various chemical agents, borax, and bleaching methods to combat this problem.

However, we are going to show you the easiest and cost-effective way to wipe them off naturally.


The Secret Sauce?


Well, use baking soda & vinegar or other combinations!

It is the most common technique to naturally remove the molds, however, very few people know how it works. The primary reason why this technique is so effective that the combination of these two ingredients gives rise to the acidic pH that discourages the use of molds.

The below list of the ingredients shows the level of pH they can maintain:

Ingredient pH
Vinegar 2.0-3.0
Baking Soda 8.3
Water 7.0
3% Hydrogen Peroxide 6.0

The above list shows that there can be various combinations for the removal of mold naturally. So even if you do not have vinegar or baking soda at the same time, you can use various other combinations.

For example:

  • Baking soda plus water
  • 3% Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda
  • Baking soda and white vinegar, etc.

The core of the matter is to maintain the optimum pH level.

We suggest you keep things submerged in any of the above-mentioned solutions for only 20-30 minutes. Keeping it for long often does not change the results much.

What Is The Best Natural Cleaning Mixture?

Out of so many available combinations, you might ask:

What is the perfect and the most suitable combination?

Well, we have seen the excellent and the most favorable results by using the paste of baking soda and 3% hydrogen peroxide.

All you need to do is to make sure that the paste is thick enough to stick on for most of the time. It is very important if you want to completely remove the problem and wait for the penetration.

Many people run into trouble when they add the unbalanced quantities of both ingredients and want to know:

What if I accidentally add too much water or fluid?

No worries, you can use any tissue or wipes that can work as strong absorbents. The tissue will drain the extra mixture, leaving the thick paste behind.

How To Remove Humidity?

Along with pH, the humidity level is also the cause of mold accumulation. A natural way to remove the humidity is the installation bathroom exhaust fan. Another product called “squeezee” also removes the water from the walls and helps in the overall reduction of moisture in the bathroom.

Final Verdict

Two factors that give rise to molds are pH and Humidity. By working on the removal of humidity and maintenance of pH, you can naturally banish molds easily.
