I live in the country and I have a high water table, which means it's damp here a lot of the time. I get a lot of mold on the outside of my house. The green mold on my siding comes off easily with the power washer. However the blackish mold that is growing on the white trim and caulk around my windows is near impossible to remove. It may be cheap trim that needs to be replaced or maybe just cleaned, but with what???? Help???

    I would say a spray bottle with two thirds water and one third bleach.

    IT is called Wet and Forget with that hose end sprayer of yours. It WORKS, It will even remove mold and moss growing in your sidewalk. Sometimes and brush helps too but most of the time it is just the spray end of a hose. You can get it at any Hardware store.

    Wet & Forget works. The problem with bleach is that, while it removes the stains and you thing the mildew is gone, it's really not. The bleach just removes the color. Wet & Forget works much better.

    I used a solution of water, a mild cleaner and bleach. Found out the curtains help hold in the moisture so I had to remove the sheets from behind the drapes to let the air flow better. No more problem. Hope this helps.

    Look for "wet and forget" to kill the mold and follow the directions on the product.
