I am going to buy this today and spray my shower and tub. Can’t wait to see the results.
Mildew/mold grows because of moisture/water. Stop it and you have a way better chance of stopping it. These sprays are only going to alleviate it. If there is moisture/water still around it WILL COME BACK!

My shower is next to my closet in my bedroom & my clothes are sometimes getting a white substance on them. I thought it was from my washer or dryer but I have new ones & I am thinking it is from my hot showers. I do have a vent that I turn on in the room of the shower but I am still getting the white substance on my dark clothes.
