As we’re entering the summer months, you’re probably noticing the humidity rising by the amount of frizz your hair is experiencing. Or at least, I am. For some reason, our region of Ohio has the WORST humidity. And with humidity, comes mold and mildew (ew, gross). But here are some of my tips and tricks to keep the mold and mildew away. Or delay it a bit.

To start, make sure you’re keeping things dry. Keep all surfaces wiped down, watch for leaks, and make sure the water from your tub STAYS in the tub. When spills happen on your carpet, make sure you pat the area as dry as you can, and get a fan on it as soon as possible.

In the bathroom, it’s a real struggle to keep the mold and mildew away, and I admit this is one area that drives me bonkers. If you have ceramic tiles, use dishwasher detergent and hot water to rub them down with a good sponge or brush. If you have some stubborn spots, you can use a cut lemon to rub on them and they will dissolve easily. Just make sure you leave the lemon juice on for about 15-20 minutes to let it really do it’s magic.

It’s a lot easier than you think, and by using my tips you can go longer between cleans!
