A diluted bleach solution is a good and cheap way to get rid of mold.

Bleach is best, but you need to be very careful with it. You don't want it or the mold on you. Wear a mask, long sleeves, long pants, enclosed shoes and socks and gloves...all items you don't care will most likely be ruined when you are done.

This site has some less caustic choices

It depends on how much and how long it has molded. I like to use peroxide for small bathroom clean ups. It's very inexpensive and not as caustic as bleach.


Be sure to air out the space well during and after!

You are talking about using some pretty strong products in a very confined space so be sure you have every window and door open as well as good fans if available (just using an AC unit will not be enough air circulation). Be sure to turn off any gas outlets from the outside.

  • Most people will say that bleach is the only thing that will kill black mold and, partially, that is correct but several other products work well and are not as caustic or damaging as bleach can be.
  • Be sure to wear gloves and use a mask if you are even slightly sensitive to any of these chemicals.
  • I keep this website handy as it has several solutions for cleaning this type of mold/mildew.

Baking Soda is one method

Step 1
First of all you need to get some baking soda and you'll need some water as well.


Step 2
Start to mix the baking soda and water (equal parts) until it forms into a paste.

Step 3
Using a rag, cloth or sponge you need to apply the paste to the mold and leave it until it has dried.

Step 4
Once it has dried you'll need an old brush to scrub off the dried paste from the mold.

Step 5
Then simply wipe away any remaining baking soda.

To try and stop the mould from growing again you can try mixing two tablespoons of baking soda and two cups of water into a spray bottle and spraying the effected area. There's also some really good info here:
