As the title says, can anyone give me any ideas on how to remove black mould from a painted papered ceiling please, without leaving a stain. We have a couple of small amounts at the edge. I removed it once before, but can't remember what I used!!

I use diluted bleach on my shower room ceiling which has the same problem.

I second the diluted bleach recommendation. I would suggest you then repaint the ceiling with Zinsser Permawhite.

Have you cured the damp that caused it? If not it will come back.

Was it a leak or condensation?

Is it in a bathroom?

Thanks for the bleach recommendation.

PigletJohn, both areas are small amounts in the bathroom and I'm sure caused by condensation. I can remember cleaning it off approx. five years ago with something, so not a major problem - just unattractive.

HG mould spray is fab, just be aware the fumes are very strong.

HG mold spray or a solution of vinegar and water.

I used neat bleach on the porch ceiling in our last (rental, badly maintained, crap landlord) house, but I'm hardcore. It didn't come back for 2 years!
