How do I get rid of mold in my bathroom?
Bleach water. To keep it from returning, clean at least weekly with bleach water, and you must not let steam build up--you need moving fresh air--a fan or open window.
From SF Gate:
Fill a small spray bottle with white vinegar.
Spray the affected areas -- including tile, grout, painted walls, and any porcelain or ceramic surfaces -- liberally with vinegar. Let it sit for one to two hours.
Scrub the mold and mildew away with a damp microfiber cloth. Scrub tiling grout or hard-to-reach corners and crevices with a stiff-bristle toothbrush. Rinse with water.
Make a paste of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water. Apply the paste to any hard-to-remove traces of mildew or mold. Spray with vinegar, and scrub with a damp microfiber cloth, scouring pad or stiff-bristle toothbrush, depending on the severity of the mold or mildew.
Rinse the affected areas with water. Repeat Step 4 if necessary.
