Mold is a type of fungus that tends to grow in damp, dark and poorly ventilated areas of your home, such as the spaces under your sink, basements or crawlspaces. If you don’t use your Teflon pans often and you store them in a damp area, mold spores could begin to grow on them. Prevent this by storing your Teflon pans in a dry place and by lowering the moisture levels in your home by installing a dehumidifier or a better ventilation system.
Things You'll Need
- Non-chlorine bleach
- Liquid dish soap
Mix 3 tbsp. non-chlorine bleach, 1 tbsp. liquid dish soap and 1 cup water in a Teflon pan.
Apply the solution to the moldy area of the pan. Let it sit for one hour.
Scrub the mold off with a plastic scrubbing brush. Do not use metal scrapers or scrubbers, as they will scratch off the Teflon.
Pour the solution down the drain and let the pan cool off completely.
Put several drops of liquid dish soap in the pan and scrub it with a soft, clean cloth.
Rinse the Teflon with clear water and dry it completely with a clean cloth.
