    Hello all, I redid bathroom a couple of years ago, put shower screen above bath etc and it looked great.

    Anyway 2 years of use and nobody wiping it down there was quite a bit of black mould forming especially in one corner.

    I didn't take a picture as frankly it looked a bit disgusting!.

    Anyway long story short I've heard some great things about this mould remover so thought I'd give it a go!.

    I sprayed it all over the mould, waited 20 mins and rinsed off with shower (cold water), repeated like that for 3 hours last night. Used a full bottle and it's completely removed all the mould, looks like brand new again.

    Tried scrubbing but just leaving and rinsing works best. Best thing of all it was £1 for a bottle!.

    Over the moon and saved me a LOT of work digging silicone out, especially as it's all water tight.

    Home Bargains sell it along with others.

    Might get into the habit of using it once a week to keep on top of it from now on..

    That's rubbish. It used to be good when it was in a green bottle and smelt, strongly, of chlorine. The EU baby sitters have got at it now I think and made the company remove the good stuff and now it doesn't work, or at least you didn't have to use a full bottle of the old stuff to kill the mould.

    4 people in our house and 1 shower unfortunately.

    We leave the window on Vent position during day but wouldn't want to leave it fully open with nobody in the house.

    Might put an extractor above shower in the ceiling but I was planning to rip it all out next year for a revamp!.
