2. Get Rid Of Water Stains
Try cleaning the water stain. You can make a water and bleach solution.
Make sure that only 10 percent of the solution’s bleach. Spray the water stain with this mixture and let it sit for a day or two.
If the water stain’s quite old, consider getting a mildew remover from your hardware store. Most of the time, the stain will disappear in a day.
Make sure you protect the walls and floor with plastic and wear goggles.
