Removing Black Mold From Grout

I have some mold on the grout in my shower. I've used bleach and hydrogen peroxide with no luck. Any ideas on how to get rid of it without spending a small fortune?

I have serious black mold in the grout between the tiles over my bathtub/shower. All the mold removal tips I can find depend on gravity, like letting bleach or other concoctions soak in over time. How can I do this? I'm hoping it can be accomplished without my arms falling off.

EASY-OFF BAM Multi-Surface Power "Toilet Cleaner"

Just run this gel down your grout lines. Walk away for 5 minutes. (Or sit and watch it work.) The black mold will be gone. Zero scrubbing. Just rinse with water. Also, work quickly the bleach smell is heavy.
I promise your grout lines will be printer paper white. Scouts Honor! ...did I mention NO scrubbing. (06/16/2008)

At Home Depot or Lowe's, get Krud Kutter. I buy the gallon ($11.35) and put some in a spray bottle and spray my tile and grout which hadn't been cleaned for many months. It did run some, but what was left worked on the grout. I just rinsed it all off and now it is sparkling clean.

I also use it on the tile/grout in my breezeway, as my 2 adoptees (Shih Tzu dogs) have never been housebroken and the urine stain is "renewed" daily by them. Again, I just spray, have a cup of coffee, then mop with clean water. Stain gone til they use the same spot again. Just "don't" use it on any finished wood, as it will strip off the finish and the color. I even use about 1/4 cup in washing machine for soiled dog beds. (06/17/2008)

I would spray with a bleach and water solution and lightly brush everyday (don't kill yourself). Eventually it will come clean, then you'll just need to spray after showers and brush once a week. Good luck. (06/18/2008)

Have you tried vinegar to remove the mold? (06/18/2008)

I read to use Lysol toilet bowl cleaner, and I did this. It took 2 or three days of reapplying and scrubbing, but it eventually came clean. (08/04/2008)
