  • Yes we have had it and fresh air and treating it and then re painting, our real estate agent fixed it up.

  • White vinegar kills mould.

  • Yes i have the same problem

  • Vinegar helps our mould :)

  • Hope you were able to solve the problem with so many useful tips

  • Mould maybe u can keep windows open. Let the breeze come through. Isn’t mould come from stagnant air and due just sitting there

  • Wash over you windows with bleach and invest in a heater that you can put on (when your home of course) to help dry out the damper rooms like the bathroom and laundry. Do your homework though because some heaters can be expensive to run. My house gets really damp because the property next door drains into my driveway. I have also heard of using salt but I am not 100% sure how this works.

  • Have you tried those mould buckets from the supermarket to put inside your wardrobe? I find them terrific!

  • I used vinegar in my car with a mould spot it worked well.

  • vinegar is a great way to get rid of mould, try it!

  • have you seen the hippo pots they do work.

  • I’ve been cleaning like mad with vinegar. I put straight vinegar into a spray bottle and spray it onto the area. Leave it for at least half hour then wipe off, I like to leave mine on for longer. Then I cover the vinegar smell by spraying eucalyptus spray. Seems to be working ok so far. I have yucky hairy mold growing everywhere.

  • Get damp rid to stop it reoccurring. Clean with vinagar, kills it and disinfects.

  • White vinegar is great for mold. It kills it so that it doesn’t come back.

  • you wil need to address the dampness issue but to cosmetically solve the issue you can scrub it with bleach, but it will come back if you can’t get the ventilation working.
