When you’re cleaning your bathroom, nothing is more frustrating than trying to remove stubborn mold and mildew. The worst site for stuck-on mold is the shower corner tiles and the corners of your bathtub. But luckily, removing the grime from bathroom corners is easier than ever thanks to a super simple cleaning hack you’ll wish you knew about sooner.
Cleaning Moldy Shower Corner Tiles With Toilet Paper
We’re always in search of the best cleaning hacks, and lately, TikTok is home to some of the most useful ones. (I mean, did you know you could clean a burnt pot with with some salt, baking soda, and a little dishwashing liquid?) Most recently, we stumbled upon this video from user @lilstepha, who showed us just how easy cleaning your moldy bathroom corners can actually be.
For the hack, all she uses is toilet paper and some bathroom cleaning solution containing bleach. To do it, tear a strip of toilet paper that is long enough to cover the moldy area. Twirl the toilet paper so that it forms a long twist, then place the twisted paper along the corner. Lastly, saturate the toilet paper in bleach or a bleach-based bathroom cleaning solution like Clorox Bleach Bathroom Cleaning Foam (Buy on Amazon, $17.99 for a 2-pack), and let it sit for at least 12 hours (and open up a window for proper ventilation!).
When you’re done, put on some cleaning gloves and remove the toilet paper, wiping the area as you go. Any mold and mildew should come off easily, and you can finish by rinsing with water. That’s it! As you can see in the video, this little hack works much better than trying to spray and scrub away at those pesky spots.
Keeping your bathroom free of mold is one of the easiest ways to make sure your home is a healthy environment for your you and family. Luckily, cleaning tricks like these make all our lives easier, and we love sharing them with you. Here’s to a fresh, healthy home!
