Things You'll Need
Mold is a common problem in bathtubs and showers. The damp and humid environment of these areas creates the perfect breeding ground for mold and its spores. Vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and borax are three items that can successfully kill mold without harsh chemicals. These items do not fill your home with toxic chemicals. Furthermore, since they do not contain harsh chemicals, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and borax are safe to use and will not damage your shower.
