Bathroom mildew is a common but frustrating problem, and many Overland Park, KS, homeowners do not know how to get rid of it and save their showers. However, there are several different ways to clean up this pesky mildew. Here are a few options for cleanup:

Some substances you can try include vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice or a mix of some of these ingredients. You can find ideas for making mixes online - there are even some options for ongoing maintenance. Most techniques will require scrubbing of some nature.

2. Chemical options. There are many commercial cleaners that you can choose from to clean your bathroom mildew. Keep in mind that most contain strong smells and may require ventilation in the room where you are working.

As with natural cleaners, prepare to scrub your shower and follow any other special safety guidelines or instructions on the package.
