    What is the best mold and mildew remover?

    Although we can't claim what the very best mold and mildew cleaner is, we can give you some of our top products for removing mold and mildew in your home. Our list features eight great choices, and any of them would be a great pick. If you're new to cleaning up and preventing mold, you could grab a few and try them out before you land on using just one for your normal cleaning routine. Many times trying different products is how we find our very favorite that get the job done for us.

    If you're in need of help getting new cleaning projects started, check out our guide, From A to Z: How to clean everything in your house — naturally. If you're not already familiar with some ways to clean up, you'll most likely be pleasantly surprised how easy it is to keep everything clean and tidy.

    How do you get rid of mold and mildew permanently?

    Mold is never permanently gone. You can clean it up and make sure it's gone, but if that area stays wet or has a lot of moisture still, chances are it'll come back again and again unless you really keep up with your cleaning routine. What's even crazier is that mold can dry out and continue to live on, too. Dry mold can even live for years unless you tend to it and make sure to take care of the problem. The best way to avoid mold altogether in your home is to have a regular cleaning routine. Here are some other tips that can also help:

    • Keep humidity levels in your home down to 50% or less all day (and night) long
    • Make sure your home's roof, walls, and plumping doesn't have any leaks
    • Make sure the air in your home flows freely so every room can properly air out
    • You can add mold inhibitors to paints before repainting your home

    Is bleach or vinegar better to kill mold?

    We highly recommend going with a vinegar and baking soda mix if you're only thinking about trying either bleach or vinegar. We never recommend using any type of harsh chemicals in your home as these types of products are harmful to you, your household members, and the environment, too. Ditch the bleach and opt for a vinegar-based cleaner like one from Aunt Fannie's. You can also pick any of our tub and tole cleaners or other useful, eco-friendly cleaners from our list of the best mold and mildew removers.

    Keep in mind bleach is a harmful chemical that shouldn't be used to clean your bathroom, but also shouldn't be used for other tasks around your home either. If you're using bleach with your laundry still, check out our article, The 5 Best Bleach Alternatives and Color-safe Bleach Products.
