Every homemaker knows that mold is a tough rival—it doesn't look attractive and this fungus likes to grow in moisture-ridden places like the bathroom. Don't worry, you're not alone in this struggle! To help you protect your walls and floors, we've rounded up some of the best products that can beat off mildew in minutes. Check them out below:

1. Work on removing stains as soon as possible. 

Mold and mildew create the worst staining on tiles. The trick to getting rid of these spots is by tackling them as soon as you see it. White vinegar usually does the trick, but if it isn't enough, you can always turn to a stronger, store-bought solution.

2. Identify the source of excess moisture.

Once you find it, make sure to eliminate it immediately. Afterwards, clean the area with soap and water, then spray the entire surface with a strong mold spray. If you do these steps, you won't have to worry about it spreading anymore.


3. Prevention is better than cure.

Remember, the best method for getting rid of mold is to catch it early. If you see tiny black spots on the surface of your flooring, walls or tiles, clean it up with soap and water and dab on a few drops of tea tree oil to prevent it from growing back in the same area.

4. Use water and mold-resistant bathroom accessories. 

Moisture is the number one enemy of mold and mildew. Dehumidify your bathroom by using accessories and furnishings that don't trap water. You can start by changing rugs, shower curtains and bath towels in your T&B.
