Have you tried bleach water? It sounds like it also needs better ventilation, so perhaps a bath fan needs to be used as well.

many different things to try, and bleach water is one of them

also you can try plain old white vinegar

or makie a spray with white vinegar and 10 to 20 drops of tea tree essential oil. Tea tree is a great antifungal. YOu can add lavender as well

thirdly if you don't have ventilation in there of nay sort (windows or a fan) find a way to get some. If you do your best to eliminate humidity that should help

also, black mold is supposed to be very dangerous so possibly a landlord (if you rent) will be under some obligation to get rid of it

Are you having mold problems anywhere else in your home? Have you checked your closet walls and baseboards?

If the bathroom is the only source then you will need to clean it up (as others suggested) and remove rugs as they are probably holding moisture in the room. You may be able to bath mats that can be easily removed when damp. Long steamy showers should be eliminated as much as possible. Buy a squeegee (like used for windshields) and wipe down the shower walls after each shower and also wipe down doors. Or if you have a shower curtain you can wipe it some also but you can also take two hands and hold the curtain and gently shake it so some of the excess water falls off. Leave an opening at each end of the shower doors not "sealed" but open at each end and shower curtain open at each end so shower stall will dry out.

Be sure floors are dry when anyone leaves the bath and no wet clothes or towels left but carried to laundry area. This will help also. Leave the fan running from beginning the shower to several minutes after completing bath. Leave door open as much as possible.

Mold is not something you want to be breathing so try hard to eliminate it. You can also buy a product called Damp Rid that will absorb moisture but it would be expensive to continue using but it is really good for closets.

If the rest of your home has moisture problems then you should invest in a good dehumidifier.

I would put straight bleach on and leave for a half hour.
