    I have a small amount of mould in the bay window area on the wall in the corner by the window going up. I have noticed this morning because a small amount of water has been dripping and leaking down from the roof of the bay area of the window which I think is due to the driving heavy rain we have been experiencing.

    In the past, I have used 3% 10 vol hydrogen peroxide to clean mould quite effectively, and for anything else on the surface that the hydrogen peroxide wasn't strong enough to get I used a solution of bleach mixed with water.

    I am quite low of hydrogen peroxide at the moment there is only a small amount remaining in the 250ml spray bottle I had bought.

    I have noticed the gf has a bottle of something called Wella Welloxon Perfect which is something she uses to make her hair blonde. Do you think this would be an effective alternative I could use to clean the mould? It is quite a big bottle. Half a litre. It contains 9% 30 vol hydrogen peroxide and seems to be a gel-liquid type solution.
