Spray liberally with Mould & Mildew squirt from eg Mr Muscle, then leave the room, preferably with the window item.

Come back an hour later, having ignored usage directions and forgotten about it all. Try to work out where the mould was.

More generally, ventilate bathroom whenever possible. Open window after bath/shower even in winter.

Watching this thread with interest as one of my bedrooms has a disgusting large patch of mould on the ceiling. Have tried bleach to no avail.

Put Mould & Mildew squirt on a cloth over a mop wipe, repeat after an hour. Thanks.

We have tried everything out there.

Only thing that works is HG Mould Spray (you can get this in homebase). It really really does do what other's claim to.

It now comes in a foam spray, which is much better, and less of a smell too. They've basically improved an already amazing formula.

Strange that the OP has had the message deleted!

However a liberal spray with any brand of mould & mildew remover will do the trick. Just be aware that it will bleach clothing if you get out on you, so wear old cruddy stuff and don't get it in your eyes either. ruined fav top and stingy eyes

If it keeps coming back, you probably don't have an extractor fan? we had to use thick toilet bleach(gel), sprays didn't cut it, scrub the ceiling standing on a ladder, then painted Dulux something bathroom no mould promise (don't remember what it was called exactly). Allowed us to have two winters until mould started coming back (otherwise it was a weekly re-occurrence, but we had no extractor fan or any kind of ventilation in the bathroom, apart from obviously opening the window, which didn't work when cold and wet in the winter)

We had this above our shower in bathroom. It always came back after lots of cleaning. Then we decorated the whole bathroom and used paint for bathrooms. Haven't had any since - the room is well ventilated, has a window, insulation ok - we were told the issue might be because the room is too cold. We only put the towel radiator thing on when the kids have a bath which is not daily.

Interesting Nodowntime that it took two years for the mould to return. It's been a year for us so far!
