Cleaning your toilet bowl(s) probably doesn’t rank as one of your favorite pastimes. And yet we all do it because it’s a necessary step in maintaining a clean, sanitary, and aesthetically pleasing household.
But what happens when mold makes a sudden appearance inside your bowl? Black mold, to be exact. The natural reaction is to clean as usual. If you do, you will indeed remove the mold. The only problem is that, unless you’re cleaning with vinegar, the mold is more than likely to return.
Sound familiar? Then here’s how to get rid of mold so it doesn’t return:
- Get yourself a clean and empty spray bottle, a bottle of distilled white vinegar, and a toilet scrub brush.
- Pour at least as much vinegar into the bottle to thoroughly cover the inside of the bowl.
- Spray the entire inside of your bowl, with a little extra application on the spots of mold.
- Then use your brush to thoroughly scrub above and below the water line, including the area you can’t see near the top of your bowl and under the rim.
- Let the vinegar sit for at least one hour.
- Next, rinse the vinegar through a combination of flushing the toilet and spraying water from a separate spray bottle – you want to be as thorough as possible.
- While this next step may seem redundant, trust us, it isn’t: pour 3 to 4 additional cups of vinegar inside the bowl and, once again, let it sit for at least an hour.
- When the time is up, flush your toilet.
