Natural Way to Clean Mold & Mildew in a Shower


Living a green lifestyle does not mean you have to live with a shower that is turning green from mold and mildew growth. You can make natural cleaners at home to keep your shower clean.

Spray Cleaners

  • You can make all-natural spray cleaners to counteract mold and mildew in your shower. Fill a spray bottle with water and add a few drops of grapefruit seed extract. Spray the mixture over the mold and allow it to sit for several minutes, then wipe it away.


  • Natural scrubs can also give you a mildew-free shower. You can make a paste out of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water and use it to scrub mold out of tile grout. Combine borax and white vinegar with warm water to create a scrub for your bathtub.


  • You can prevent mold and mildew from growing in your shower by keeping the room well ventilated and by wiping down the walls of your shower with a sponge or a squeegee after each use, according to "Living Green."
