It's been a while since I've done any Pinterest testing. It's like I've had my hands full all day (and night). New babies... they'll do that to you.
Nothing like a neglected tub to snap me out of it, right? I realized yesterday how bad the tile in our tub had gotten. There was quite a layer of soap scum build up (no-scrub tub cleaner to the rescue) and mold growing in a couple of the corners. Ack! How did I let this get away from me?! (Oh yeah... the baby. Blame it on the baby.) I hate mold! It multiplies quickly and is so stubborn and hard to get rid of. And this old tile from the 50's is terrible. I knew I needed to nip this problem in the bud STAT! Here are some photos. Cringe:
The instructions say to use cotton beauty coils that you have to buy at a beauty supply store. That sounded like an extra trip to the store and a waste of money, so I got out my good old-fashioned cotton balls instead.
Soak the cotton with bleach, then press them up against the mold spots.
Let sit overnight and in the morning, your mold will look like this:
Hot diggity dog! I have to say I was pretty shocked when I removed the cotton. I couldn't believe how sparkly clean that grout was! Not even a hint of mold! Woohoo! Now to tackle every inch of dark matter in that old grout!
A Pin Win for sure!
Since this test was so successful, I decided to try the same method on my toilet. Read all about it HERE.
