When the temperature gets warm and the air around you is moist the circumstances are best for developing mildew.
This mildew can grow in laundry left in the washing machine, on wet carpet, hard surfaces, or in your bathroom to name just a few places.
Not only does the mildew have a smell you could definitely live without, it also can leave quite a stain even once the mildew itself has been removed.
Do you have any tips for how to remove mildew stains that you want to share?
If so, please make sure you explain what surface you removed it from, because this impacts the methods for removing the stain.
