Could you give me some advice on what to use to get rid of mould. In my bathroom, I have tried exit mould but that hasn’t even touched it. What is the best thing for it? Thanks

  • Vinegar truly is better than bleach at killing mold. … In fact, recognizing the bleach as a ‘threat,’ the mold will grow back even stronger.” When bleach is used on porous surfaces like drywall or wood, mold membranes will move deeper into the surface to avoid the chemical.

  • Vinegar and bicarb will remove mold and vinegar on its own with break down soap scum.

  • I agree with the suggestions that have already been made – vinegar or bleach are great for removing mould and mould stains. Tea tree oil will also kill mould, but may not always remove mould stains.

  • Clove Oil is great – stinky but good. I put a sponge with clove oil in an old stocking and used that to wipe the mould off and it hasn’t come back since

  • I have used vinegar as well and it worked well.

  • Squirt pure bleach on it and leave it overnight

  • a steam cleaner is great for getting mould off any household surface

  • I make up a paste with some vinegar and bicarb soda and use an old tooth-brush to scrub any mould that appears in the grouting. It works a treat.

  • Try Sol u Mel, which is a totally green product but very powerful. I can supply you with a bottle if you wish, E mail me rene@zippy-uk.com

  • Bleach and a mr scrub it :)

  • I have used scalax/scalex before when I worked as a cleaner many years ago & it is the best. Was purchased through proper chemical place though in Rocky. Otherwise just use Domestos, squirt directly on the affected areas & let it sit for at least an hour or more allowing to dry then scrub with wet scrubbing brush. Silicone is the hardest to clean, if it’s still really bad after a few trys your best replacing it.

  • I use pure bleach. It works a treat. Just leave it on for an hour or so.

  • I have had this problem as well and i used vinegar and i was actually shocked that it did get rid of it.
    Good luck.

  • Clove Oil

  • vinegar and bicarb works every time i use nothing else
