Bathroom Tile – Cleaning Ideas

By · July 1, 2011 · Filed in Bathroom Tile

I bought my house about 5 years ago and I have always had this problem. For some reason the spacing on the bottom row of tiles never lined up and they are thicker (probably were replaced). Anyways, it is a pain to clean. It is black (some kind of mold) and I can’t get rid of it. Suggestions?

I used one of the bathroom cleaners that is thick and clears mildew and mold. I left it on for the day then did the best I could cleaning it with a toothbrush. When I was finished all that, I put silicone in the crack and I had a nice clean line on my tiles.

Get some mildew killer that is more gel-like than liquid. Then it will stick to the area. I saw on the t.v. the other day that Clorox makes a tile cleaner that is gel (and contains bleach) so that should do the trick.

Also, try to keep the humidity in your bathroom to a minimum. If you don’t have an exhuast fan, get one. It isn’t all that expensive to have one installed, and it will probably save you time on cleaning up mold where you can see it, and you may even have some mold behind your sheetrock and on your subfloor. That would not be a good thing when it comes to sell your home.

Just my thoughts.

after you get it clean, invest in some grout sealer, which is a clear thin liquid applied with a sponge or small paint brush. Then it will be more resistant to stain and mold.

You can try to get some soft scrub and putting it on there. It has bleach in it and bleach will kill mold and mildew. If it is the wall tile, then but smear it all over the wall and let it sit for about 10 minutes… if by chance it dries, it is hard to get all residue off completely, but it will take care of the problem. :) oh… if its on the floor like on ceramic tile, you can just squeeze it out in the grouting and let it sit for about 10 minutes and then scrub it off with a scrub brush… good luck…
