Is your house older and prone to bathroom mould over the winter months? We can spend a lot of time wondering what to do about mould in our bathrooms, when it can be really easy to prevent it from growing in the first place.
Next time you are in your bathroom, look at ways you can ventilate it to stop a build-up of moisture and warmth (which mould spores love).
Remove any mould that is on surfaces by spraying Mould Magic and cleaning off with a sponge or cloth. For hard to move mould use a little Peppermint or Rose Cleaning Paste and a some elbow grease.
Once you have removed the mould let the area dry and spray with Mould Magic to prevent it coming back. Clean windows with our Glass Cleaner and newsprint for a sparkling finish.
Here are some very helpful tips to reduce mould growth in your bathroom.
Keep windows open as much as possible. Opening them while having a shower or bath and leaving them open allows much of the steam to escape.
Leave your bathroom door open so that the damp air can be exchanged with the rest of the air in the house.
Sunlight dries and airs, so let as much of it in as you can by opening windows and pulling back curtains and blinds.
After a shower, leave the shower door open to allow the shower to air out.
By all means get a dehumidifier, but please run it on a timer, not all day.
If you have heated towel rails, throwing your damp towel straight onto them just creates even more damp air. Wait until your bathroom has dried out before placing towels on a heated towel rail. Better still, do what Nana did and take your towels out into the sun to dry.
Wipe down showers and walls after your shower. It’s really easy to remember to do if you leave a cloth hanging in the shower.You also have to clean the shower less.
**Every week after cleaning the bathroom, spray the walls, ceilings and floors with Mould Magic to prevent mould spores growing**
