Mold Removal –Attempt 2

This weekend I gave that pesky bathtub mold a second shot. I followed the same steps I did last time (soaked some cotton balls in beach and pressed them against the mold). This time I left the beach on for a little over 4 hours – I’m way too impatient to wait any longer. I want to see results right away!

Anyway here’s how it looked after the second attempt:

There is definitely a bit of an improvement but still not where I want it to be. I actually noticed that some of the grout came up with the cotton balls (whoops!).

You can see in the picture above that the grout is completely missing in that one section.

As I mentioned in the previous post, the bathroom tile was all painted over and I think they did a poor job. The same goes with the grout. So I wouldn't be too worried about trying this in your own bathrooms. I suspect the grout in my bathroom would have come off with or with out the bleach.

I think if I left it overnight I would have gotten even better results. But to be honest, it’s a rental and I only have one more year left living here so I’m not going to put anymore effort into getting rid of the mold.

Now I need to try and get rid of the hard water stains on the faucet!
