When it comes to household chores, most people simply hate the process of cleaning of the shower. Some of the reasons why this task is so difficult are the soap scum as well as the hard-water buildup. Moreover, due to the fact that bathrooms are humid places, they are susceptible to mold and mildew, which are really stubborn and it is difficult to get rid of them.

Mold is extremely dangerous for your and the health of your loved ones. Even weekly cleaning is not efficient and doesn’t remove the mold and mildew.

One of the methods for removing the mold and mildew is by using bleach. However, the bleach kills only the surface mold and doesn’t prevent its reappearance. In fact, after using bleach, the mold appears again, even bigger and badder than before.

Also, you can buy antimicrobial spray, which is expensive and doesn’t provide permanent results.

But, is there some alternative that is cheap, more efficient and completely natural?

Yes, there is! White vinegar is the ingredient you need. By mixing it with tea tree oil you will get an antifungal boost, and the orange oil will provide you nice smell.

Below we are going to present you a DIY mold and mildew spray that is completely natural, non-toxic and safe for use, but it also is cheap and incredibly efficient.
