How to Remove Mildew Around Bathroom Sink Drains How to Remove Mildew Around Bathroom Sink Drains

What You'll Need
Bleach
Baking Soda
White Wine Vinegar
Sponge
Gloves

A mildew ring around bathroom sink drains is not only unsightly, but it is also a health hazard. Below is a short process to remove mildew and leave your bathroom sink sparkling. 

 Step 1 - Clean Inside the Drain

First tackle where the problem is coming from, the inside of the bathroom sink drains. Pour a small amount of baking soda into sink drains then follow with some white wine vinegar. You will see the mixture fizz but don't be alarmed, that means it's working. Then, flush the drains with water, and that will take care of where the mildew originates.

 Step 2 - Clean the Sink Basin

Next, ensure that the outside of the sink drains are clean by tipping a bit of bleach into the sink basins near the outside of the drains and scrub with a sponge or brush. Then, rinse with water, making sure that all of the bleach has been washed away. 

Step 3 - Upkeep

Mildew will keep coming back if you let it. Try the baking soda and white wine vinegar combination regularly to keep the pipes clear and make sure to keep the area around your bathroom sink drains clean so that new mildew will not appear.
