Does anyone have an eco friendly way to clean mold and mildew in your bathtub? I've tried many natural cleaners and none seem to work. I really don't want to have to resort to Tilex or something awful like that.
Molds are part of the natural environment. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.Most molds need 24-48 hours of moisture to begin to grow. Therefore if a suitable material in your home is wet for more than 24 hours then you run the risk of mold starting to grow.
When living in the Southeast, mold and mildew are a constant battle. I run a 70 gallon dehumidifier in the house to keep mold at bay. I try to keep the humidity below 50. My latest dehumidifier is great---35%. They are all noisy and need air space, so pick a place close to an outlet, and a place to dump the water, but where you won't be too annoyed by the constant hum.
