Mold & mildew busters

Mold and mildew are always a threat, especially if there is a window with sill in your bathroom. The steam from showers and baths can affect the woodwork of the window and lead to peeling paint and mildew spots. Ventilation, such as an exhaust fan, can help minimize this problem.

The same applies to the shower. The best kind of shower curtain to buy is a cloth type that can be laundered. Hang it to dry in the sun to thwart mild and bacteria. Check out these recipe below and test them out for yourself.
