My shower has got loads of black mould on the grouting. How do I get rid?

(Rented house, if that makes a difference!)

Thick bleach. If it's on a surface that it will slide off, soak toilet paper in bleach and scrunch it on so it sticks like spitballs.

Yes I agree with using bleach. You have to leave it there for a few hours.

What Mrs Hathaway said, although we use cotton wool. Works a treat

I heard about some stuff you get at home base , HG??

Bleach and and old toothbrush for scrubbing. If it's been there a long while it might not look completely 'clean' again.

HG Mould spray is brilliant.

For vertical surfaces I use kitchen roll. Tear it in to long strips, spray grout where Mould is, press kitchen roll on to grout, spray again on top of kitchen roll. It doesn't take long. Check it after half an hour.

Remember to rinse and keep it away from any chromed finishes as it can cause discolouration.

Yep - neat bleach. Bottle of domestos - cover it and leave for an hour or two, then rinse well. Re-do as many times as is necessary

This stuff

This is the best! Costs about a fiver in the supermarkets, you just spray it on the affected areas, wait a few minutes and rinse it off. It's so much better than the Cillit Bang etc versions.

HG mould spray, or a brush-on gel for the vertical surfaces, as it sticks for longer.

I like Astonish mould and mildew in the green bottle. Available in places like Homebase.

Cilit Bang bleach stuff, comes in a black and purple bottle. Spray on, leave a few minutes and then wipe off. It's brilliant

Dettol mould and mildew remover, it the Lidl’s equivalent.

littlewoollypervert Mon 16-Oct-17 19:25:54

Dettol mould and mildew - brilliant

Bleach and bicarbonate of soda applied with an old toothbrush. Lrabevit on for 10 mins. Wear a mask over your mouth though for the fumes.

HG spray from b&q. You spray it on and the it just disappears. Amazing. Also amazingly toxic...

UserThenLotsOfNumbers Mon 16-Oct-17 19:33:59

Yes to what everyone has suggested so far.
Just to add. Make sure you ventilate the room and protect your hands/airways if you’re using strong chemicals. Also make sure you never mix chemicals.

HG mould remover spray from either Lakeland or B&Q

dementedpixie Mon 16-Oct-17 19:37:06

Dettol mould and mildew or kilrock mould spray - both pretty much the same

Puppymouse Mon 16-Oct-17 19:38:37

I swear by dettol mould and mildew. Spray liberally and leave it. After a few treatments you’ll only need to use it occasionally. Haven’t had a mould issue in years since starting to use it and that includes a bathroom in a basement flat with no windows.

I recently used a thick paste of bicarbonate of soda and bleach. I spread it over the mouldy bits, left it for around 5 hours then rinsed it off. It worked like magic.

summerlovinggirl Mon 16-Oct-17 19:42:48

I also use bleach. Pour it on toilet roll and place on the mould. If it's on a vertical surface, I stick the toilet roll and bleach in place with some masking tape. Leave overnight and it's bright white by the morning.
