To get rid of the nasty black gunk in your drain & mildew smell: 1. Put a pot of water to boil. 2. Meanwhile pour baking soda down the drain (BS has the ability to neutralize fatty acids so it will eat away the grime) 3. Once boiling remove water & pour down drain. 4. Let the water/BS work at decomposing and sterilizing the grime for 10 min 5. Then pour 1 c bleach down the drain to completely kill any remaining mildew or bacteria. (repeat every few months)

ONLY use this and it leaves floor spotless. (Heavy duty floor cleaner recipe: ¼ cup white vinegar 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap ¼ cup baking soda 2 gallons tap water, very warm.) It leaves everything smelling amazing.
