The corners in the shower are the place where a black layer of mold often accumulates, which is unpleasant, unsightly and difficult to remove. This happens due to the excessive concentration of moisture, an ideal habitat for fungi and bacteria.

To prevent them from forming, always ventilate the bathroom for optimal air exchange and use a fan heater before, during and after showering to counteract water vapor. Rinse the windows and tiles with cold water before leaving the stall and dry them with a squeegee. But if it has already settled, it is easy to remove it as long as you know some effective natural remedies and the method by which you can use them. Let’s see how to do it together!

To whiten the corners of your shower and bathroom and get rid of mold at the same time, do the following! First, wear gloves and masks before the operation: mold is a collection of fungi and bacteria that is best not touched or inhaled directly. Now let’s move on to the various solutions that need to be taken to eliminate it.

If you have been given citric acid to soften your laundry, you should know that it is also a powerful degreaser that can remove limescale. It is extracted from citrus fruits and is a natural compound that is also effective on limescale. Pour 1/3 lb. into 1 quart of water, pour the resulting liquid into a clean vaporizer and spray it on the corners of the bath. Leave on for 5/10 minutes, then rub with a toothbrush.

In the same way, lemon juice, precisely because it contains citric acid in high concentration, is also suitable for our purpose. Squeeze it to obtain about 1 glass, add a tablespoon of baking soda and stir to obtain a kind of cream. Now apply it to the moldy corners with a toothbrush and rub gently. If you prefer an anti-fatigue agent, you can pour it pure onto the damaged areas, lay down a cloth and leave it on for an hour. Finally, just rinse it off, the mold will melt away like snow in the sun.

We have mentioned baking soda, and it is essential that we also pay attention to this essential ingredient. Its abrasive action is so great that it’s perfect for removing blackened encrustations. All you need to do is make a paste with four glasses of water and one glass of baking soda. Apply as needed, leave on for 20 minutes and rinse.

In this list of natural remedies, vinegar cannot be missing, an infallible ally when it comes to household cleaning. All you have to do is fill a spray bottle half full of water and half full of vinegar and pour it over the mold. Leave the solution to work for a few minutes and rinse it off. Simple, right?
