Don’t Let Mold and Mildew Ruin Your Bathtub

Don’t Let Mold and Mildew Ruin Your Bathtub

Mold and mildew aren’t always super obvious. Keep them away with a squeaky clean tub!

While you may not realize it, your bathtub can get incredibly dirty. Just because you can’t see signs of stains or detect an odd smell doesn’t mean everything is peachy. Let’s say, for instance, that your cat gets desperate enough to use the tub as a giant litter box. That is an obvious situation for cleaning out your tub. Here are some other things to keep in mind when it’s time to clean your bathtub.

Dirty Little Secret

Believe it or not, all the bath toys you keep for your kids are havens for germs and bacteria. In fact, anything else you tend to keep around the edges of the tub can become vessels for mold and mildew. In all honesty, anything that can contain moisture can become a place for mold to grow and mildew to settle – and not just in the bathtub. Make sure everyone in your family stays as happy and healthy as possible by regularly cleaning your bathtub. If anyone in your family has a mold allergy, then you know how serious the issues can become if they are left unaddressed.

Keep Mold and Mildew Away

When toys aren’t in use, keep them out of reach. You should let them air dry before using them again. The best place to let them dry is in front of a heating vent or by an open window. After all, spring is coming, and your bathroom could do with the fresh air anyway. If your bathroom is equipped with a fan, turn it on and let it go for fifteen or twenty minutes to help clear up the steam from the hot water.

Don’t let your kids use too many bath toys at one time. The fewer toys there are, the cleaner the toys can get because they won’t be clustered together. Likewise, you might want to keep a toy in the bathroom to distract your dog when it’s time for a bath. Follow these same tips when you do.
