Get Rid of Mold in Your Shower With SNiPER
DIY – How to Remove Shower Mold
Mold often wants to grow in the grout between tiles in your shower. This is hardly surprising because of the daily dose of water. It is all too common to find black mold or mildew growing into the grout and then spreading to the tile walls and growing and growing from there. It doesn’t have to be that way. Here’s how to get rid of mold in your shower with SNiPER.
First, get your shower stall a squeegee. Wipe down the walls after every shower. It takes less than a minute to wipe the walls, any little flat surfaces and then the floor. This little step, taken every day, makes a big difference because mold needs water to get going. Without water – mold will not grow. So let’s deny your mold the water it needs to grow. This is easy, and it works!
Once or Twice a Week
Before you get in the shower, grab your spray bottle of SNiPER and leave it handy just outside the door. After you have squeegeed the shower stall, exit the shower, grab the spray bottle and spray the walls, corners and floor and then walk away, leaving it to air dry. Make one of those two applications on your weekly bathroom cleaning day. On that day, use a scrubber to scrape loose any crud that might be there, wipe that crud away with a rag or paper towel (because that crud is a ‘food’ source for mold), spray one more time with SNiPER™ and walk away, leaving it to air dry. If you do this twice a week, you will never have a mold issue develop. Prevention is key! It’s much easier to prevent than to get rid of mold in your shower. So stop it before it starts and clean up the rest with SNiPER disinfectant!
Why Not Use Bleach?
It is a common idea that chlorine bleach kills mold and at the mere mention of mold, many people run straight for the bleach. But this idea is just not true. Bleach does not kill mold. Let me say that one more time – chlorine bleach does not kill mold. And if that chlorine bleach that you have is more than 90 days from the date of manufacture, it it has already lost more than 50% of its strength. Chlorine bleach will only weaken it, and may – or may not – make it change color. Bleach does not kill spores. Additionally, bleach is unsuitable for indoor use because of toxicity issues. Outside, bleach may be useful because it can cause a color change.
How Do I Get Rid of The Stain?
Sniper kills mold safely, but may not cause the color change – bleaching – that most of us want to see in our shower stall. While chlorine bleach may cause a color change, the use of chlorine bleach inside your home can be a nasty experience and leave you with burning eyes and irritated lungs. These vapors are dangerous to both pets and people.
Instead, you can use ordinary hydrogen peroxide (3% is readily available) and good old fashioned baking soda. AIn a small bowl, add just enough peroxide to some baking soda that you can mix together a thick paste. This non-toxic paste can be applied with fingers or a toothbrush. Apply this paste to the affected areas and allow it to sit for 10 minutes or more. Then use a toothbrush to scrub vigorously using a circular motion. Repeat if any little spots of stain remain. This – or something very like it, is probably what your gandmother did to deal with mold stains. It requires more effort than bleaching using harsh chemicals, but is much easier on your home and your health.
SNiPER™ has an extremely low toxicity rating (the lowest the EPA gives to any disinfectant!) and to use it, you don’t need any special protective gear or mask. You need not fear breathing it or getting it on your skin. SNiPER™ is non-corrosive and will not harm your fixtures. Try it today and get rid of mold in your shower with SNiPER.

Best Odor Control for carpet
Nok-Out and SNiPER are both great products that I use in my carpet cleaning biz to remove odor in carpets. It works great against pet urine odor! It doesn’t cause discoloration and always works. Sniper kills mold and removes the odor in carpets as well. Great products
Nok-Out Removed Old Dog Urine Odor
I have an Electrolux rug shampooer and was trying to remove old odors of dog urine in my oriental carpets. I shampooed them then put a concentration of 4-1 water to Nok-Out in the tank and went back over them. No more odor!! Worked great! Was sooo happy!
Rotten Potato Smell Gone!
There cannot be anything worse than potatoes that are forgotten and rot. Any pet I have ever had that had an accident cannot compare. Nok-Out eliminated the odor quickly. What a wonderful product!
Cats Get Old!
Cats get old. Things happen. Nok-Out was recommended to me by a friend in another state. I Will never go to the pet store again to try any other product. Nok-Out is IT! I told my Veterinarian about it. I love how fast it arrives after ordering. I ordered three times because we are still working on issues, but at least the house doesn’t SMELL! Amazing product. THANK YOU!
Sniper Removed Old Water Odors, Mold & Mildew
I have been using Sniper in the Offshore oil industry as both a disinfectant and a deodorizer for years. It has eliminated old water smells of toilets and bathrooms not used in a year where the water sat and molded mildewed and stank. As well as being injected into our old quarters ac vents to prevent mold buildup. Always worked better than anything comparable and well worth the price.
I Am Amazed at The Results!
I learned about Nok-Out from Mary Hunt’s Everyday Cheapskate column and had to try it. Shipping was so fast and your customer service is OUTSTANDING! I am amazed at the results! I even filled a tiny spray bottle to keep in my car. I won’t be wasting my money on any other cleaners anymore. You have a lifetime customer here. Thank you so much!
Christmas tree and Raggedy Ann
We have an artificial Christmas tree that’s still gorgeous but old. Putting it up always bothers my asthma and irritation from getting scratched is not pleasant. Last year I sprayed the tree and the “old tree” smell disappeared. I had purchased Sniper on Mary Hunts advice and it really took care of the basement (moldy) smell! Great! My daughters vintage dolls with cloth bodies had spots of mold or mildew, these are dolls my grandchildren play with. Oh my goodness! Sprayed the doll’s bodies and yarn hair, and the next day they all smelled great, moldy spots gone ! These dolls were over 30 years old and now look soooo good! Would recommend Sniper for other uses, too. Doggy rug smells gone! Smelly shoe odors gone. Grateful to Mary Hunts column for letting us know. 😊👍⭐️
My Mildew Stain Disappeared!
I brought in the plants for winter and when it was time to move them back outside in the spring, I had a mildew stain on the carpet. I received my Nok-Out Carpet cleaner and sprayed the stain and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I returned to scrub the stain it was completely gone!! Woo hoo!! Thank you, Mary Hunt, for introducing me to this wonderful product!
Completely Eliminate a Horrible Smell
Mary Hunt introduced me to Nok-Out years ago and I am still amazed at how it can completely eliminate a horrible smell.
Yesterday I hosed some dust off a plastic laundry basket. I left it outside to dry for a bit and then returned it to the garage.
A few hours later I walked into the garage and the entire place reeked of cat pee! I did not realize that the neighborhood tom cat had come by and sprayed my basket. It was so bad that I was ready to trash it, but I thought I would try to spray it down with Sniper first. I doused it liberally and left it overnight. Ta Da! Absolutely no smell this morning!
Even after all these years, I am still amazed every time your product works on a smell as terrible as cat spray!
Thank you, Ted!
Sniper Eliminated Our Mold Problems!
We’ve used SNiPER disinfectant for several years. It works great. It has eliminated our mold problems and, still, we use it to keep our wooden cutting boards safe.
“Nok-Out Saved My New Car!”
Thank you for creating such a great product. I would and will recommend this to everyone I know. My son left raw meat in my car for 4 days and I thought that my new car was ruined, but after talking with you and using the product, I can now get in my car and the only thing that I smell is a clean, disinfected smell! Thank you for saving my new car!
Removed All The Feral Cat Urine
Sniper has been AMAZING. I was able to completely remove all the feral cat urine scent from the carpets, mattresses, clothing, and toys. It worked beautifully and left no smell, no fumes, and didn’t leave any discoloration. Sniper is now my cleaner of choice and I use it everywhere to clean and sanitize as well as freshen the air. I even use it in my daughter’s gym shoes and soccer bag. Thank you so much. Seriously the best product on the market.
