Help Shower cleaning!!

So my husband and I do not share a bathroom - I decided to do something nice today and clean his shower - since well boys do not clean, clean.

And I found mold  - he does not use the fan. I have tried bleach, vinegar and Vim.

Does anyone have any tricks!!!

HELP

  • I don't understand why bleach wouldn't work.  Where is the mold?  In the grout?  On the tub or tile? On the walls?  Really the location of the mold will dictate how I would get rid of it.

  • Its in the grout.... all over it. The tile on the floor the walls..... its a rental and my landlord is not being helpful at all!!
  • The faces of the tile you should be able to use a magic eraser and/or some serious elbow grease and a strong bathroom cleaner.  

    For the grout, I would get a spray bottle and put a bleach/water mixture in it.  I'd start 1 part bleach to 4 parts water.  What I'd do is spray it everywhere the mold is and then leave it be.  Don't rinse.  That should kill off the mold.  Then you might need to wipe it off the tiles 24 hours or so later.  Just use a damp rag.  

    But before you do that, you need to test an area to make sure it's not going to discolor the tiles.  Try the area behind the commode.  Testing is crucial.  If the 1 to 4 mixture doesn't kill the mold, you'll want to make a stronger mixture until you find a concentration that does the job.

  • If the mold is black, you need industrial strength cleaners and check with EPA.  Black mold can occur in showers as growth from a water leak eats drywall.   It must be gotten rid of and can harm your family.
