How to Combat Mold and Mildew

Keep your bathroom clean, healthy, and in great condition by:

  Cleaning:  While bleach is a great cleaning agent that will restore sparkle in your tub or shower, it won’t kill mold or mildew. Use vinegar to eliminate the problem, and to prevent further growth, keep a spray bottle of vinegar handy and use it every time you finish a bath or shower.
