Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The easiest and safest way is to spray white distilled vinegar on the areas needing to be lceaned and allow it to sit for about 30 minutes and it will kill the mold and any bacteria. Using a harsh chemical cleaner can contaminate the water the next time it is used, so I would only use vinegar.

Vinegar kills bacteria and germs. Vinegar also kills 82% of mold species.

  • Pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. Do not dilute the vinegar.
  • If you prefer, you can use a cloth to apply the vinegar, instead of using a spray bottle.
  • Apply the vinegar to the moldy surface. You might need to scrub the mold away to remove it totally.
  • Leave the vinegar to sit for about half an hour. Then rinse and wipe the surface with water.
  • Alternatively, you can leave the surface without rinsing it. This is the best way, if the vinegar smell does not bother you. Leaving the vinegar without rinsing will help prevent the mold coming back.
  • The vinegar smell should go after a few hours.
