What can I do to clean mold
Are you trying to clean mold off walls or in the bathroom?? Let me give a few ideas for both and hope they answer your questions.
Hi there. Mold can be tricky, depending on where and what you're cleaning. It would be helpful to know more about your issue.
Hi. Here are some posts that may help... https://www.hometalk.com/search/all?filter=how%20to%20clean%20mold
White vinegar will kill mold spores. Bleach does not (common myth). So first you need to address the source causing it to build. Then kill with the vinegar. I like to soak towels with vinegar rather than just wiping down if it's a lot of mold. If it's mild, then wiping will be fine. Rinse area or if wood, clean with wood cleaner, after the vinegar has been applied. If you have staining from the mold, then consider a heavy duty cleaner or a scrub like baking soda & hydrogen peroxide.
Hi ! It really depends on where the mold is or what it is on . Usually you need a product with bleach , but if it's not too deep you can use white vinegar . Just know if you are talking about grout , if mold site too long , you won't be able to just clean it , it will need to be scraped out and new grout put in .
Bleach normally kills mold.
Depending where the mold is and on there are many things that help but a spray of vinegar and a clean cloth or brush can get it clean. Bleach may take the color out but not a good cleaner for mold. Prevention is key. Why do you have mold so it doesn’t come back. A fan or air circulation can help dry things.
Read these, then decide for yourself.
My vote is for vinegar provided the infestation is only surface mold and does not require professional remediation.
Warm water and bleach or vinegar usually works. Be careful when using bleach and use rubber gloves. Protect your eyes also.
There are several ways to get rid of mold, but most importantly, you need to address the root cause to keep it from returning. This article focuses on the bathroom, but is an overall great article that covers methods of how to remove mold, if bleach is safe to use, and how to prevent it from coming back. Hope this helps!

Hi Tbaby, please be sure to put on a mask and rubber gloves before working with this, good luck with the cleaning,
Scrub the surface mold stains from walls and wood trim with a mixture of 1 qt. water and 1/2 cup bleach mold cleaner to kill the mold. Use a soft brush and work until signs of the mold disappear. After scrubbing the surfaces, simply allow the bleach solution to continue to penetrate the surfaces and dry.
