You're better than your mess.

Okay, so I just moved into a new apartment that is actually a quite old, basement apartment, and the base of the toilet leaks just ever so slightly, not enough for a huge puddle, just so the floow around it is slightly damp all the time. There is no fan in the bathroom, and I think it's starting to attract drain flies/bugs. Do you know of anything that I can spray/keep in the bathroom to counteract constant moisture, and likely eventual bugs and mold? Thanks!

1. GET THE TOILET FIXED. This is part of your landlord’s job. Before you do anything else, call and set up a time to get it fixed.

2. You can use cat litter to absorb moisture, or something like DampRid, which is a crystallized moisture absorber.

3. Clean it with a bleach solution (10:1 water to bleach is useful for most cleaning) pretty frequently to discourage things from growing.
