Fight Bathroom Mold Naturally with MyShower

Thanks, MyShower, for sending products to review for this post!

Moving from Utah to Maryland has been a great experience for the most part. One negative thing we’ve run into is how humid our bathroom is! Mold and this funky orange slime love to hang out in the corners of the tub where we store bottles of body wash and shampoo. I know it isn’t just us because one of my girlfriends mentioned she deals with the same problem!

We have a traditional shower caddy that hangs over the shower head but the kids can reach it. This is where MyShower has made a difference for our family. They have a line of bathroom accessories that you can place anywhere you want for easy access and it keeps your bottles off the edge of the tub so you don’t end up with standing water and the resulting mold and bacteria!

Here are some tips to fight bathroom mold naturally:

Prevention:

– Seal tile and grout with a sealant that prevents mold. You can pick up grout and tile sealer at a home improvement store and do-it-yourself!

– Avoid standing water by storing bottles and accessories on the wall. MyShower has great products that are mold, mildew and rust-free.

– Spray surfaces with white distilled vinegar every few days. No need to rinse!

– Spray surfaces with water + tea tree oil every few days. Use 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil per cup of water. No need to rinse!

Cleaning:

– Clean moldy areas with a paste of baking soda + water. Take it a step further and use white distilled vinegar instead of water. Let it react then scrub clean.

– Spray moldy areas with 3% hydrogen peroxide and let sit 10 minutes. Scrub and rinse. Hydrogen peroxide can cause bleaching and discoloration. You can dilute it or test it in a discreet area first.

MyShower is sold exclusively at Target. I have the MyEssentials kit but you can mix and match individual products to customize your family’s bathroom. All you need is a slick, non-porous surface to attach the suction cups to!

  1. Wow great tips and very useful tips! I would totally do this. Thank you for sharing!

  2. We get mold in our shower and sometimes in the kids bathroom. I usually spray the mold with a bleach solution similar to chlorox clean up.

    I really need some of these caddies in my shower. There is half a tile in the corner, where we put our stuff. Needless to say, we are running out of room.

  3. These are some great ideas for fighting bathroom mold. I’m always amazed at how much you can do with vinegar. Thanks for sharing.

    It seems like vinegar and baking soda are truly my best friends. I am amazed at how useful they are. This is the first time I’m hearing about the water + tea tree oil trick. I hope someone or one of these international companies would bring My Shower here to my country. There’s a huge market here who’d love to try it out for sure.

  5. I absolutely love the little holders for your shampoo. These tips are amazing. I normally use baking soda to clean my bathrooms and it works wonders. I’ve never tried Tea Tree Oil though, so I’ll have to give it a try. Thank you for sharing and have a great weekend ♥

  6. These are great tips! Thank you for sharing!

  7. I used to use a sponge to clean my shower but I find that a brush is more effective to get between the tiles! I had no idea that baking soda worked for this…I will try it out!

  8. I love that this is a natural way to fight the bathroom mold. I am always concerned about introducing chemicals – especially in the shower or our kitchen. Thank you for sharing.

    i am saving this post. I have no idea why but over the counter products do not work so I liked that these ideas are using products I have in the home already. Although I do need the tea tree oil.

  10. Definitely good tips for getting rid of mild and mildew! I will be trying a couple of these and looking for some of those MyShower accessories.

  11. I totally need a shower caddy! It also makes my tub and shower much more organized, and safe when I have a baby crawling around during bathtime trying to each the shampoos!

  12. We definitely could use these products in our kids’ bathroom. For some reason it’s much harder to fight mildew in there. Thanks for the review!

  13. I like that these are natural ways to keep mold away. I’m a big fan of spraying vinegar and water between uses. It does a great job of keeping all the mold away.

  14. That would be super useful for my son’s apartment. Old apartments don’t usually have good spots for shower supplies.

  15. CourtneyLynne says:

    Omg this is great to know!! I’m all about doing everything I can naturally! Swear vinegar is the secret to everything!

  16. I’ll definitely have to try My Shower. We have a lot of bottles–body wash, moisturizer, shaving cream, face cream, shampoo–hanging out in our shower. There’s rarely a trip in there that doesn’t result in something falling. This definitely seems like a good solution!

  17. Great tips! We just moved to a new apartment and it gets humid in the bathroom so these are perfect.

  18. I am thankful that I have never had to deal with any mold issues. This sounds like an amazing product.

    This is awesome indeed for fighting against mold naturally. I know that peroxide gets rid of mold but I thought borax does too. This is going to be something I will be trying for sure. Thanks for sharing.

  20. I love it when my bathroom is sparklingly clean. It’s so exciting to shower (it’s a girl thing, isn’t it? haha). I’ve used vinegar and baking soda before, but not tea tree oil. Will have to dry that.

  21. Thanks for these tips! I don’t have any special tricks, but plan on trying the white vinegar one you mentioned. The MyShower products look great too!

  22. I have always heard that vinegar can help keep bathroom mold at bay. However, I didn’t know that spraying every few days can help prevent it. I’ll start doing that now!

  23. This accessories can really can keep the bathroom organized. It’s best to clean moldy area to preven accumulation.
