How to Get Rid of Mildew Stains
Mildew stains can be hard to remove, but not if you attack them with one simple ingredient: hydrogen peroxide. The agent oxidizes just like bleach, but it's much safer. The fungus won't stand a chance against your new secret weapon, especially when mixed with a little water and some elbow grease.
Step 1: Mix the Solution
Mix one cup of hydrogen peroxide with one gallon of hot water.
Step 2: Apply the Solution
Transfer the mixture into a spray bottle and apply it to your mildew-stained area. Let it stand for a few minutes before agitating with a brush. Apply some more and let it stand for 15 minutes. Rinse clean.
Step 3: Stubborn Stains
If your mildew stains are very stubborn, apply undiluted hydrogen peroxide straight onto your tile. Agitate it with a brush, let it stand and rinse clean.
