"Be careful when you mix chemicals, never mix vinegar and bleach," said one mother.
"Glad you're experimenting and figuring out something that so many people are struggling with – please research your chemicals carefully before you mix!" another warned.
Inhaling the toxic fumes can lead to coughing, breathing problems, allergic reactions and even nasty burns.
It's a common cleaning mistake many people make as cleaning experts have warned for years that adding acid to bleach creates a toxic chlorine vapor.
Before you get rid of the mold in your home, the experts at consumer company CHOICE said the first thing you need to do is assess the surface that the fungus will adhere to.
"Non-porous" surfaces such as hard plastics should be relatively easier to clean.
“When mold grows, it develops hyphae or roots that grow into the mortar or silicone. You can clean the surfaces of the mortar or silicone, but not deep inside. In those cases, you'll need to replace the silicone or re-grouting your bathroom, ”they said.
