Bathroom Mold

Hey pro and non-pro cleaners I want to start a new topic about how you deal with the mold in the bathroom. What are the methods, that you use usually. Any suggestions and advices?

I use spray with mold cleaning agent. You have to choose carefully the one you intend to use. Cleaning the mold once doesn't mean that you have vanished it forever. As it is very often seen in damp places you have to find a way to reduce the moisture. Opened windows also help to solve the problem party though this method is not very good in the winter. I've heard that some people use plant-based alcohols to fix the problem but I'm not sure is this work.

There's a product here in Australia called Sugar Soap. If you have that whee you are, try that as it works really well and its not caustic either....I think

You just have to choose the right product and to use it very often. There is no other way except cleaning regularly.

I use bleach too ,but the mod comes back month later. I started to open the window after taking shower looks like this works for the moment. Any suggestions how to fight with mod in the winter, because I am not going to leave the bathroom window open.

Repaint the wall with some salt in the paint. Hope that will work.

I don't think it is good idea for the painting. Bathrooms are usually with tiles and not painted.

You are right but the mold is over the tiles' fugues, so I can't repaint it

That's what I mean. You cannot paint a bathroom.

This sounds better. But it won't save you from the mold. You should try something else like Lysol.

I hear about product called K-14. Very strong and effective product against mold. Did someone use it?
