Cover Up Bathroom Mold

The mildew-blackened caulk around your bathtub will surely disappoint your mother, but no amount of bleaching will make it white again. Here's a quick, cosmetic solution: Hide the mildew under a thin layer of fresh caulk. (Let it cure overnight before using the shower.) Mom will never be the wiser. This is not a permanent fix. If you don't remove and replace all the caulk, the mold will grow up through the new layer in a matter of weeks. (See Caulking Around a Tub, a Step-by-step)
