For the last few days, I have noticed this smell in my bathroom. I couldn't seem to place it. I had cleaned the toilet. Taken out the trash. Washed the tub/shower. Cleaned the sink. Mopped the floor. But for some reason, the smell still lingered. I checked in cabinets, behind organizers, and underneath the sink...but nothing seemed to be the source of the smell.
This morning as I was having my quiet time, my husband came out of the bathroom with two of the baskets that I use to hold our hairbrushes, hair dryer and straightener. From a distance and in the dim morning light, I thought I saw shaving cream on them. But upon a closer inspection this is what I saw.
Can you see it? It's fuzzy, white and green... It's mold. Disgusting! No wonder my allergies have been flaring up lately. I need to tell my pre-teen and teenage daughters to not take such long hot showers in my bathroom. I have since throughly scrubbed the bathroom again and washed the floor mat, just in case that was a secondary cause of the foul odor in my bathroom. Hopefully tomorrow, it will smell fresh and clean!
