Vodka Kills Mold And Mildew

November 25, 2015

An immaculate white porcelain bathroom? Beautiful. White tiles mired by dark mildew and mold? Disgusting.

Keep your bathroom spic-and-span with an unusual, chemical-free cleaning agent: vodka. Yes, spraying a small amount of plain vodka onto mold or mildew will kill bacteria and clean the area.

Important note: Make sure to only use plain, unflavored vodka. Flavored vodka will leave your home with an odd fruity scent, and probably a legion of bugs, thanks to the sugar inside!
