Mold and mildew become problems for many homeowners, especially in the humid, damp environment of the bathroom. While mold and mildew may lead to breathing problems, especially for those with respiratory conditions, many home methods help remove mold. Lemon juice helps kill and remove molds from surfaces.
Lemons have a high concentration of acid which helps break down the mold, removing it from the surface, according to the Earth Easy website.
Spotting Mold and Mildew
The most common way to identify mold and mildew is by the green to black growths that develop. Wet areas like bathroom shower tiles are ideal areas for the growth of the mold.
Cleaning with Lemon Juice
Clean the mold and mildew areas with liquid soap and water. Rinse the area well. Use a scrubbing sponge dipped in full-strength lemon juice to fully remove the mold.
