How it works

Caroline's anti-mold solution is simple and only requires 3% hydrogen peroxide. In her video, Caroline recommends replacing the lid of the hydrogen peroxide bottle with a spray nozzle to evenly spread it around the affected areas of your shower.

"Bubbling action means it's killing mold!" read the caption.

After letting the hydrogen peroxide sit and bubble for 10 minutes, scrub off the residue using the rough side of a sponge (or a scrub brush). Once you're all done, rinse the solution with hot water and enjoy a cleaner bathroom experience.

How it's helping

Mold exposure creates serious health risks, and removing it from your home can be costly. Depending on the amount found in your home, professional mold removal can cost anywhere between $1,128 and $3,450. If left unchecked, mold can damage your home's structure and pollute indoor air quality. It's best to remove mold as soon as possible to protect your health, your finances, and your home. 

Further, many popular cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that can irritate skin and eyes and cause harm to the environment when they wash down drains and enter waterways.
