I know you probably meant minutes, but I love the typo of "virus." Kind of sums up what we're all thinking about.


Lynneshe

Actually hours...Damn autocorrect

Lynneshe

Put the shower curtain in the washer on cold with bleach and hang it back up to dry.


Mz-B

Thanks! I've also read you should put towels in with the curtains, any comments on that?


pictonbug

I never have, but growing up my mom always washed towels separate and in hot!


Shoe-in

I think it would be to add extra friction, give the shower curtain something to rub against.

Create a paste out of bleach and baking soda. Put paste on caulking or grout. Cover with plastic wrap wait a couple hours and rise off. It was in the freepress years ago and makes it whiter then ever. Wear a mask if you can and run the vent as it's bleachy.


Mz-B

Oh I like the sound of this, will give it a shot. Thank you!


sunshine-x

Find a toilet bowl cleaner with bleach and pour it into the cracks and leave it for 60 mins. Scrub lightly and wash away. Works like a charm. Also, wear protective gear. That stuff is dangerous.

Bleach is a terrible thing but it kills mold like no other. Put a 10 percent bleach/water solution in a spray bottle and go to town. Be warned: bleach eats up spray nozzles like crazy so rinse out your spray bottle really well.


tmlrule

What makes you think bleach is terrible? I thought it was quite environmentally friendly compared to many other cleaning reagents?

Bleach actually does not kill mold all that well. It will often just turn mold grey (bleaching it), but the mold will actually still be alive. Vinegar does a better job actually killing mold.


crashmtb

Peroxide too.


Sneezingfitsrock

Vinegar definitely works. I’ll have to try with dawn

Arm & Hammer magic eraser is phenomenal, from stove top burns, to stainless sinks. Bathroom and will even get paint scruffs off cars and walls. Amazing something that actually works.

You were doing it perfectly, and your roommates aren’t. They’re causing the problem. The only way you can eliminate the mold is to wipe the wet surfaces down after a shower. I don’t know what other answer you’d expect:) Edit: use bleach. With a mask on.


Mz-B

An old roommate once mixed vinegar and bleach and came back out alive. Mask on for sure.


Biggaboy45

Go see Swish. I had a shower I thought I’d need to replace. Fixed me right up!

tie the fan into the light switch and put a time delay off. ie every time the lights go on, the fan goes on and then runs for a few minutes after, 10-15 or whatever


tantanthemagicman

Mz-B
