A small patch of mildew has recently appeared on the ceiling above the shower (despite the bathroom being well ventilated, window open a LOT). The ceiling is just plasterboard painted white. What product would take the mildew away but leave the paint behind?

The only thing that works on our bathroom ceiling is bleach

Dettol mould and mildew spray. Works every time. I keep our bathroom well ventilated, but it is inevitable that mould appears on the ceiling above the shower.

Mould and mildew spray. Any brand. B&M and Lidl ones are fine. Spray on and leave.

HG mould spray. Stinks to high heaven but does the job. Be careful to wear gloves and protect your eyes if you're spraying the ceiling.

I remove it with dettol mildew spray spray on leave for a couple of minutes and then wipe off.

Astonish mould and mildrew remover. Spray on, wipe with microfibre cloth (cheap ones are just as good).

I use Dulux bathroom paint
