Ways to Remove Bathroom Mold


Mold is one particular problem every bathroom owner has to deal with at some point. And cleaning is something we often forget, especially if your bathroom doesn’t have windows to make you see the dirt much clearly. But if do want to keep a clean bathroom, there are ways you can work without much effort, and cost! So, do you want to get rid of the mold in your bathroom with no more than $5? Grab the following materials and read the instructions from below:

• bleach;
• a pack of cotton beauty coils;
• some q-tips;



First, take the cotton coil, cut a piece out of it and soak it in some bleach. You can do this with not much mess if you work inside the tub and put a disposable pie pan in as a container for the bleach; because you are supposed to let it on the mold for the night. Also, in order to not get your fingers covered with bleach, use a q-tip for the transfer. Then all you have to do is marvel at how a little bit of work, like the one you did, got this amazing result. The bath is clean and the mold is not going to return very soon. It’s that easy!


Make shower grout shine again.

A mixture of baking soda and bleach paired with some elbow grease and a toothbrush is all that you need to do this.

    This is terrific. Can’t wait to try it. But can you tell me what is a cotton beauty coil?

    • Sandy says:

      Susie here is a link to what cotton beauty coil is. I didn’t know either what it was, no I just have to figure out how to get some. I just don’t feel like ordering on line.

    • Carla says:

      you can google cotton beauty coil and it will bring up images. It’s the long roll of cotton that hairdressers sometimes use around your head to prevent product (hair dye, permanent solution etc) from getting on your face.

    • Jamie says:

      I had to look, too. Makes sense since it will be able to sit in one place and not move.


    • Donette says:

      A cotton beauty coil is like one long continuous piece of cotton.

    • Dr. Dan says:

      Google is your friend. That is how I found out. Turns out it is about the thickness of a cotton ball, but a long thread or more like a cord, of cotton. It looks you can get them am beauty supply stores (like Sally).

    Question. can i use bleach on a fiberglass tub?

  5. Grammhy says:

    Does this actually kill the mold or just bleach it out so you can’t see it?

    Clorox now makes a ‘clinging’ type bleach for cleaning that (wearing a light weight vinyl glove) just sprayed on, let set for an hour, scrubbed with a scour sponge enough to feel the scum gone, and wiped off with a paper towel. I am not a housekeeper – I hate it and my bathroom looks like an old gas station restroom from the 50s (okay, a slight exaggeration), but it really was pretty easy.

    Way to keep tiles and grout white after cleaning is to wipe down walls with Mop and Glow makeing sure it gets in grout good.

  8. Aaron Love says:

    Zep mold and mildew remover(home depot) works just as fine. Just spray on and leave it then rinse later. You’re welcome!

  9. Kirsten says:

    Used the bleach technique in college dorms 20 years ago, only we used rolled toilet paper instead of cotton coils.

  10. Feetje Mei says:

    Bleach contains chloride, which is bad for health and environment. Instead if bleach you can use cleaning vinegar as well. It kills rhw bacteria causing the mold.

  11. Betty says:

    A cotton coil is like a roll of Cotton balls but one continuous coil. Can get at beauty supply stores.

  12. Annabelle says:

    If you use a squeegee after each shower and then use an old towel to quickly dry it after the squeegee you won’t ever have mold and It only takes a few seconds. You tile will shine like new ALL the time. Greatest tip I ever acted on.

  13. JB says:

    What is a cotton Beauty coil?

  15. Jen says:

    Can I do this mold treatment during the day instead of doing it at night?

  16. Mr Clean says:

    For anyone contemplating using bleach, here’s a couple of things that I’ve found when using bleach to kill mould.

    #1 – Bleach can be effective for cleaning killing mould but like most DIY cleaners its impact is only temporary.

    #2 – Bleach is highly corrosive and can damage many materials, especially fabrics and paintwork and even if it does not damage the colours it may weaken the fibres.

    #3 – Bleach is dangerous for humans too. Not only is the gas it produces toxic to the lungs but bleach can cause serious burns on the skin.
