Clean House: Removing Mildew From Bathroom Caulk And Grout

1:17 PM

Mildew. Not a normal topic of conversation on this here blog. Everybody's got mildew lurking a shower somewhere, but it's not really the type of thing us gals care to chat about over lattes and macarons. It's gross, it's stubborn, and our shower had it BAD. I happened to discover a little cure-all that I had to share with y'all, so....try not to be bored to tears with this post, mmmkay? I tried zillions of bottles of cleaners promising to banish the black stuff from our pristine white shower. Nothing worked. Just when I thought we were going to have to rip the caulk about and redo it (annoying), I tried one last ditch effort: a bleach pen. I just squirted that gooey bleachy goodness along the caulk, let it sit for about 14 hours, and scrubbed it away in the morning. Squeaky clean and white caulk was all that remained. Yeehaw!

One step towards a clean shower, one giant leap towards my wifely domestication.
