Bleach will kill the mold. Silicone caulking ages after awhile and should be scraped out and replaced. (04/21/2009)

Put bleach on a cotton ball and place it on top of the mold. Do this on every spot and it will clear it up. Good luck. (04/28/2009)

If you have a lot of this mold, you can sponge or spray on bleach or diluted bleach. I would use it full strength, although it is stinky. Open a window. Be careful not to get the bleach on anything colored, towels, your clothes, and so on.

After it sits a bit, rinse it off. Be sure to give it a few minutes to do its work. It should not be necessary to scrub. I have to do this on my bathroom ceiling where I get a mildew problem, although we keep the bathroom well vented, open the window, and run the fan. Once these things get growing they are tough to eradicate completely. (04/28/2009)
