Preventing Bathroom Mildew Has Seriously Never Been Easier (PHOTOS)

There are a ton of ways to prevent bathroom mildew from forming, but our friends at Country Living found a super easy tip to stop the fungi -- and it doesn't involve any scrubbing.

Simply run the bathroom fan after every shower or bath. Don't have one in your space? Home Depot has a video on how to install one (you may need a professional, depending on the situation). Or, just always remember to open the bathroom windows. The ventilation will allow everything to dry faster and stop you from having to deal with a mess.
