Mould at windowsills

(8 Posts)

I live in a top floor flat with no access to dry clothes outside, and our landlord recently replaced our knackered washer dryer with just a washing machine. As such, the process of drying clothes means we are beginning to see mould appearing at windows.

Obviously, we're doing all the sensible things such as spinning everything twice, putting heating on and keeping windows open, but it is becoming more and more of a problem! Any top tips to get rid of mould would be very much appreciated.

Dettol mould & mildew remover is amazing. I've just been around squirting our windows. By the time I've squirted them all, it's time to go back to the start and wipe it down.

Is there an extractor fan in the bathroom? Put an airer in there - over or in the bath means it's not in the way so much. Close window and door and run the extractor fan.
